The Tree Tops Primary Academy Mission
The curriculum offered at Tree Tops Primary Academy has been designed to ensure each and every child is inspired to be a creative, thoughtful life-long learner. We strive to provide engaging and memorable learning experiences that connect subjects and demonstrate clear links, inspiring children to develop their curiosity and deepen their understanding.
The curriculum offered at Tree Tops Primary Academy is centred around inquiry-based learning, which is underpinned by a set of core skills. We believe this approach to learning develops curiosity in our learners, enabling our pupils to learn about being a learner, while developing essential skills and attributes for future development, ultimately developing pupils as lifelong learners. Pupils attending our academy will also learn about themselves as individuals and others around them, learning how to manage their own well-being and the well-being of others. We believe this enables pupils to have high aspirations, knowing how to contribute positively both locally and globally, regardless of any disability or special educational need.
Our Curriculum has been carefully designed to enable the depth and breadth of the national curriculum to be explored through the transdisciplinary themes of the IB framework. At the heart of this are the attributes and expectations set out within the IB Learner Profile which our pupils are expected to demonstrate. Pupils at Tree Tops Primary Academy should be: Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk Takers, Balanced and Reflective.
A key focus through our curriculum intent is to enrich all pupils’ learning with co-curricular opportunities to enrich their cultural capital and life chances. This includes both off and on-site experiences with organised trips and visitors to enrich the curriculum offer, providing children with wider experiences beyond their daily life, developing, inspiring and preparing pupils for future success.
