Through our broad and balanced curriculum we aim to enable children to grow into informed, independent people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential.
A curriculum is a list of guidelines and content that are required to be taught by teachers and learnt by pupils. To see the National Guidelines that Shortbrook are following click here.
Curriculum leaflets are sent out termly to parents. If you require a copy of any of the leaflets they are available in the leaflet stands in both breakfast club and the main school office. Each Class has a curriculum page on the website which includes a copy of the leaflet that is sent out to parents, please use the links below.
