Curriculum Overview

At Greenwood’s Holistic Learning Center, we aim to ensure that every child learns through access to a broad and balanced curriculum adapted to challenge and support individual children. We strive to create a stimulating learning environment which will engage all children and make them want to learn. This means that they will develop a love of learning and a natural curiosity which will stay with them throughout their life. We monitor children’s progress and development carefully so that new skills and ideas can be introduced as soon as a child is ready to progress to the next stage of learning. We believe that children learn most effectively from first-hand experiences and we provide these through practical lessons. Our curriculum provides opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve and it promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We know that the mental health and well-being of our children are critical to success in school and life, so education about mental health and well-being is an integral part of the curriculum. We also ensure that we prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in the modern world. 

Our planning for teaching and learning incorporates the Early Years Foundation Stage and the UK National Curriculum/USA Common Core Standards.
