The Inspire Partnership curriculum is underpinned by education for global citizenship. We believe that learners are entitled to an education that equips them with the knowledge, skills and values they need to embrace the opportunities and challenges they encounter; creating a future that they want to live in. Learning is brought to life through current contexts that connects to our children’s lives - who they are, how they fit into the world and how they contribute back.
|Our curriculum connects to real life, promotes thinking as a global citizen and develops character skills for young people to make meaningful contributions to society. Even very young children are trying to make sense of a world marked by division, conflict, environmental change and extreme inequality and poverty. It is designed to enable children to make deep connections between learning and understanding the world that they live in, leading to children connecting taught knowledge and skills with agency and purpose.
For this reason, our curriculum links to Oxfam's global citizenship and the United Nations sustainable development goals.
At the Inspire Partnership, we provide pupils with a knowledge rich curriculum that recognises substantive and disciplinary knowledge are intrinsically linked and interdependent. Our carefully chosen content places core knowledge at the heart of each curriculum subject. The knowledge is cumulative and constructs firm foundations from EYFS which children can build conceptual understanding over time.
Key conceptual knowledge is mapped and sequenced in termly overviews and through the knowledge organisers. Core knowledge is drawn from the National Curriculum, and within discrete subjects, categories of knowledge are identified to ensure broad coverage and progression across each year group. The subjects are sequenced carefully to ensure that all children receive their full entitlement to our ambitious curriculum content.
