The curriculum at Darley Churchtown is engaging, exciting and relevant to the children at our school and aims to prepare our children for life in modern Britain. It is underpinned by both our Christian values and the core British values to ensure that equality and inclusion permeate all of our learning. It is driven by a desire for our children to have a greater knowledge of the world and an awareness of the possibilities open to them in their future lives and careers.
Our aim is to promote aspirational, independent children who are happy, respectful and have self-belief. We want all children to become creative, active and reflective learners, enabling them to be able to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of a rapidly changing world and promote a commitment to lifelong learning.
The school curriculum comprises all the learning and other experiences that a school offers its pupils. Maths and English are a pre-eminent part of our whole curriculum, are taught as daily lessons and are used and applied throughout the curriculum. Our curriculum builds a community of learners with an excellent attitude to learning in a safe and caring environment.
Wherever possible we arrange enrichment visits, trips and activities that connect to the children's current topics and provide valuable links with their learning. These activities are generously subsidised by PTA (Parents and teachers association) funding, so that costs for families are kept as low as possible, whilst enabling these visits to go ahead. If you would like to know more about how you can help the PTA with funding, please visit their page on this website.
