Our curriculum

Our curriculum follows the structure and high expectations of the National Curriculum. It has been carefully designed and personalised, for Highbury Quadrant, to encompass the diversity of our community and our Nation.

Leaders, teachers and governors have worked collectively to design a coherent and sequential, thematic based curriculum. It is designed to excite and stimulate pupils to learn about the world they live in and to enjoy a creative approach to development. From the Early Years onwards our focus is on the development of strong characteristics of effective learning and good learning behaviour.

Children have opportunities to learn with and from each other. We value individual pupil strengths and talents and expect all children in our school to strive hard for their potential. In year 6 we prepare our pupils to be young learners who are ready to embrace the challenge of moving on to secondary school.

The staff and governors are firmly committed to equality of opportunity and ensure that barriers to learning are removed so that every learner can achieve their potential.

We are well situated, in Highbury, Islington, to access places of cultural and academic significance. Educational visits play a fundamental part in the learning experience of our pupils. In Key stage 2 pupils have the opportunity to take part in a week-long residential trip to Cardfields rural studies centre (run by Islington Council).
