Bespoke, Broad and Balanced Creative Curriculum

At Bonneville, we deliver a full, rich and exciting creative curriculum.

Children develop a deep understanding of their topics, which enables a clearer focus on skill development with our cross curricular approach.

We aim to maximise varied opportunities for our children, with memorable learning experiences through the exploration of our key drivers:

  • Enterprise Learning
    Our children are given the opportunity to develop skills such as problem solving, decision making and evaluating risks.
  • Communication
    Children learn through whole class, group work, paired and individual learning. We encourage our children to talk, discuss and feedback to each other.
  • Environment
    Our creative curriculum uses the local and wider environments as a stimulus for learning. Children learn to be caretakers and develop an understanding of sustainable living.
  • Possibilities
    Children develop an understanding of the opportunities open to them through visitors, external trips and themed focus days / weeks.
