Crowan Curriculum Statement

“Crowan School uses the National Curriculum as a basis to plan units of work with a cross-curricular, thematic approach which is meaningful and engaging for the children. The school curriculum has two elements; to provide opportunities for all pupils to achieve and to promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. At Crowan, there is an emphasis on experiential learning, including the opportunities for outdoor activities, visits, visitors and cross-curricular links, leading to an immersive approach where the children take ownership and develop a love of learning.”
Through Cornerstones, we are developing the following ‘Big Ideas’:
