Our Curriculum

The Horwood & Newton tracey Big Event Curriculum

Curriculum Statement of Intent


At Horwood & Newton Tracey Primary School we aim to build the foundations of life in all its fullness underpinned by our values of wisdom, compassion, justice, service, peace, perseverance, care for creation and hope, where we understand what it means to be loved and to love others within our school and our local, national and global community.

In order to achieve this, we have created a curriculum built on four drivers: Building Learning Power, Building Futures, Building Communities and Building Self-Esteem. It is through our drivers that we seek to raise children's personal aspirations by providing them with the skills, knowledge and understanding to realise their ambitions.  

The Big Event curriculum provides opportunities for the children to develop a sense of pride in their locality and at the same time supports them in gaining a secure understanding of other cultures from around the world. Our curriculum is rich, exciting and diverse, but most importantly, it is accessible to all because we ensure all children have the skills they need to engage with their learning at every level.

At Horwood & Newton Tracey Primary School we provide a topic-based approach to teaching and learning built around the Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.
