Curriculum Intent Statement
At Sunnyside Primary Academy, we believe that our curriculum is one that is broad and balanced and is ambitious for all. It is exciting, relevant and meaningful and responds to the needs of the individuals within our learning community, enabling them to shine academically and flourish socially, emotionally, morally and culturally.
At Sunnyside we believe that our curriculum should be seen in its widest sense – as the entire planned learning experience, including formal learning opportunities as well as events, routines and enrichment activities that takes place inside and outside the classroom. Also, permeating our curriculum are the core values of our school – Strength, Perseverance and Aspirations.
Our curriculum at Sunnyside is designed to allow each one of our learners to:
Achieve the best possible academic standards, whatever their ability
Develop skills and personal qualities for lifelong learning, preparing children to make an active contribution to society
Explore real world experiences, so that children can see the relevance their learning has in the real world
Become mentally and emotionally happy and resilient citizens, ready for the challenges of the 21st Century.
