Intent- the aims and programme of education including knowledge and skills.

At Hill View Primary, our curriculum is framed by the school ASCENT values and underpinned by a set of core Learning Values that allow the children to develop key skills that transcend subjects allowing them to develop life skills that they will carry with them throughout their lives.

Our curriculum has been designed to recognise the needs of the children at Hill View and build on prior learning with a focus on subject specific knowledge, skills and concepts as set out in the National Curriculum.  We believe our children should explore their curiosity, develop individually and become critical thinkers.  Our bespoke curriculum provides opportunities for personal development, collaborative, child-led learning experiences and overall, it motivates and inspires children to achieve their very best. 

Community involvement provides essential possibilities for our children as we use local knowledge, skills and resources to promote opportunities for learning and challenge beyond the classroom developing

Children leave Hill View as outward looking citizens, with a growth mind set, an understanding of their personal learning journey and an awareness of both local and global interests and challenges.
