Our curriculum is designed to embody our own ethos and ensure that we offer our children a broad and balanced curriculum with a breadth of rich experiences which enables them to develop and explore their passions and discover new ones. Our curriculum is personalised, reflecting the background and experiences of our pupils whilst celebrating diversity to promote unity. It is purposeful, routed in authenticity and context to ensure that learning is relevant.
At Rosh Pinah the curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allowing the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers. We constantly provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and foster aspiration.
Rosh Pinah School engages all learning styles using a variety of resources including Early Years Outcomes, National Curriculum Statutory Guidance, Values Based Learning, Outdoor Learning and Enhancement Opportunities which support the teaching of the curriculum. All of this is underpinned by an exciting and modern Jewish Studies curriculum which fosters a love of Judaism, a strong sense of identity whilst instilling tolerance and respect for other faiths.
The curriculum is delivered through the application of Quality First Teaching which recognises the use of clear focused learning intentions and success criteria as an effective tool in gaining intended learning outcomes. Staff are trained to use effective questioning techniques to develop higher order thinking skills. In lessons we provide opportunities for study but we strive to provide as many recall and application activities as possible to support the retention of knowledge and understanding.
