Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any of our pupils please contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Sarginson, Mrs Hill or Mrs Dixon
Please see the safeguarding section of our website under Policies > Safeguarding.
At Hopwood C. P. School we deliver an inclusive, broad, rich and creative curriculum which provides our pupils with meaningful learning experiences to inspire and challenge learning. Our curriculum aims to identify opportunities for all pupils to apply their core knowledge and skills in English, Mathematics and Science across all subject areas and to enable pupils to develop the necessary skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners.
Where possible, we link learning and subjects so that pupils have the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge taught., However, we acknowledge that some subjects fail to link and therefore need to be taught stand alone. The curriculum is sequenced in half termly blocks.
Units of work are carefully considered taking previous learning and gaps in knowledge into consideration. Themes are given broad titles to create flexibility and an ability to respond to children’s interests. There is opportunity to respond to events and news to ensure learning is relevant.
