Educating Today's Child For Tomorrow


Welcome to our curriculum page. Across our schools we work hard to ensure our children receive a broad and balanced curriculum which develops skills and provides a knowledge base that inspires them to learn more.  We want our children to value education and to love learning.


We seek to prepare our children for life beyond our building and for the world of tomorrow; 

to be grounded young people that make a difference in the world in which they live. To challenge and question when faced with the unknown or injustices, not simply comply. 


We believe that a culture of learning, built on strong relationships and a curriculum that is planned with key skills and knowledge at its heart, is what our children need and deserve.


We don’t just ‘value’ working with families, we KNOW it is the key to success and our culture is based on collaborative and supportive home school links.


Our curriculum develops the acquisition of knowledge and language through explicit teaching of each National Curriculum subject, with opportunities to revise, review and revisit previous learning until key skills and knowledge are ingrained.


We have, as a staff team engaged in the work of Marc Rowland, Mary Myatt and Tom Sherrington as well as research and reviews from the Education Endowment Foundation and continue to be readers and researchers who are responsive to the changing needs of our children.   We have adopted the following approach and methodology to our curriculum delivery:


Teach Simply 

Model effectively 

Practise thoroughly 

Feedback constructively 

Aspire for excellence  


We also read and respond to reviews of curriculum and the pedagogy of teaching and learning, from bodies such as the DfE and Ofsted, and bring what we feel is appropriate and realistic into our own curriculum development.


Our curriculum is currently dynamic and being deeply reviewed to reflect a national agenda which is rightfully ensuring that all children are exposed to learning experiences which drive ever higher outcomes for them.  We are committed to ensuring the best for all our Bushey Federation children through  ensuring capacity for differing pathways and differing pace for individual learners and their differing needs. Reasonable adjustments sit as part of our curriculum offer in each curriculum area to help us meet the needs of individual learners and adjust our curriculum accordingly. Our School Development Plan is very much centred around the evolution of our curriculum, you can find it attached below.
