Templars Curriculum Intent
We want our children to know how it feels to belong.
We want them to belong to Templars Primary School, to belong to their community and belong to the wider world of opportunity. The Templars’ Tailored Curriculum has been carefully crafted to make our school a place of belonging - complementary to our commitments to rigorous safeguarding, restorative behaviour practices and to our core values of care, respect and honesty.
Welcomed into our place of learning, our pupils can feel confident that they will belong, fit in and are safe in their identity. Our curriculum takes every opportunity to relate firstly to their immediate locality of Tile Hill and Coventry. Every child, every day will be given every chance to ask, “How does what, and who I am learning about, relate to me and where I belong?” Through subject disciplines children learn that they are part of wider communities – of authors, geographers, historians and engineers, of mathematicians, linguists and scientists - selected to provide the diversity to inspire every child. As each child makes progress though the curriculum the geographical lens widens to explore the wider world of boundless promise and opportunity.
Carefully selected teaching pedagogy ensures that all children, regardless of their differences, know that Templars is the place where they can contribute, where they can be heard, where they belong; every child, every day, every chance.
Our school aims and the aims of The Templars’ Tailored Curriculum are one and the same:
We aim to provide a curriculum that has been especially created for our own children. It will be relevant, progressive, cohesive and exciting. We support this aim by providing a rich variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities, which provide both breadth of experience and opportunities for personal/social development.
Our staff plan learning with care and precision. They have the highest aspirations for pupils and the children will be encouraged to work to the fullest extent of their capabilities in all aspects of the enriched curriculum.
We aim to promote equal opportunities for all children.
We will achieve this by valuing difference. We recognise each child as an individual enabling them to develop. personal, spiritual and moral values, an understanding of different religions and beliefs, a tolerance for others and their ways of life.
We aim to encourage self-discipline, self-esteem and self-motivation so that our pupils can grow to become valuable members of society
An important emphasis will be placed upon the child’s personal development and developing a love of learning. High expectations of behaviour, manners and respect are the foundation of our relentless routines.
We aim to provide a safe, warm and friendly atmosphere for all who learn and work within it and for visitors. We will work to provide an environment in which children and adults will feel both safe, secure and happy, enabling them to develop effectively and reach their potential. In support of this the school and its governors are strongly committed to ensuring the physical and mental health of all pupils and staff and will encourage pupils to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and staff to take care of their mental and physical wellbeing.
