Perton Middle School Curriculum Intent Statement
At Perton Middle School our curriculum prepares students for adult life by developing an understanding of what it means to be a responsible global citizen. We empower students to make a positive contribution to the community within which they live now and in the future.
A development of resilience and independence are a focus where reliance on self-study skills measures the success of their learning as defined by their home learning through the knowledge banks.
Pupils recognise their shared and individual contributions to the communities they belong to now and in the future. This is encapsulated in our school motto. ‘Proud to be Perton’.
Students recognise the relevance of all areas of learning; subjects teach a depth of knowledge and skills. The curriculum framework facilitates an understanding of how all knowledge is interconnected, shares key vocabulary and creates a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
This coherent approach develops the emotional literacy of our students through the reading of quality texts which can be linked to both the learning we do in school and the qualities and attributes that we should strive to incorporate into our adult lives as leading citizens.
Knowledge, Metacognition and Community
We empower students with both academic knowledge and the knowledge to enable them to be socially responsible.
Metacognition underpins the acquisition of that knowledge developing the capacity to be a passionate lifelong learner.
Our learning community recognises all learning is connected and interdependent. A sense of belonging nourishes students to become responsible global citizens, now and in the future.
This is encapsulated in our school motto: Proud to be Perton.
