Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum has undergone a full review to ensure it fully meets the vision and values of the school, as well as being tailored to serve and engage our community.

In Dunraven Educational Trust, we have identified 9 curriculum principles:

  1. The Bigger Picture

  2. Knowledge Rich

  3. Retrieval 

  4. Deliberate Practice

  5. Oracy

  6. Reading

  7. Stories

  8. Enrichment

  9. Feedback and Assessment

You can see our curriculum overview here.

We have added a substantial number of carefully curated books to our school library to ensure there is sufficient diversity for our readers

We have been working closely with ‘The Literacy Curriculum’, who provide us with English support, ensuring that teaching texts provide children with a broad range of authors/characters/settings that are representative of our school community

We have been adapting our curriculum to reflect our local community - enhancing focus on local issues such as The Windrush.  We are currently exploring how we can improve first hand knowledge from community members and leaders

We are working with local partners/organisations to ensure our children feel connected and valued in their own community

We are providing opportunities for our children to meet and engage with positive black role models in our community e.g. Florence Eshalomi MP

We have established a ‘Pupil Parliament’, giving our children a voice in our school development and events 

We are fortunate to live in inner London and therefore have access to some many resources such as Brixton Chocolate Museum, Myatts Field Park, Triangle Adventure Playground, Natural History Museum, London Transport Museum, London Connected Learning Centre, Physic Garden, London Eye and the Festival Hall.  We try to maximise the experiences children have to enrich and support the learning. 

Hook, Line, Thinker - we hook the children in to their new learning, explore various lines of enquiry and pose questions to ensure the children have 'deeper thinker' opportunities.
