We hope that you find the following information useful, if you require any further information on our curriculum please contact Mrs Coles the Headteacher.

Creative Curriculum

At Turvey Lower School we aim to provide our children with an education which is both broad and balanced. In order for our Creative Curriculum to be successful it has to have a clear, educational purpose and be delivered with imagination. Our dedicated teaching staff carefully plan and deliver a creative curricular topic approach to learning. We teach multiple learning objectives across different subject areas. These subject areas include History, Geography, Design and Technology, PSHCE and Art. Where possible links will also be made to other curriculum subjects, these include the Core subjects (Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Computing and RE). Our planning is tailored to the needs of pupils in order to provide them with an accessible and relevant learning experience. There is a well organised approach to assessment and tracking, monitoring and evaluation of children’s progress.

Every term each class has a new topic (except for Early Years/Reception) and class newsletters duly inform the parents of the topics that their children will cover. 

As a staff we enthusiastically plan for the children to experience open ended tasks, using drama and role play to assist the children to see “the whole picture”. We want to make their ‘learning journey’ exciting and memorable. Our children are helped to recognise relationships and patterns in their learning and they gain a deeper understanding.

We aim for our children to leave Turvey Lower with exceptional standards in Reading, Writing, Numeracy and Science, together with emerging skills in problem solving, creative and critical thinking, communication, research and teamwork.

Turvey Lower School provides a rich learning environment which motivates   children not just to develop a love of learning but also a zest for knowledge and skills, which will hopefully stay with them for life. We are an excellent school which ensures the delivery of a modern and exciting Creative Curriculum.
