Our Creative Curriculum
At Canonbury, our integrated International Primary Curriculum is unique, exciting, relevant, diverse and innovative . We celebrate the diversity in our community and endeavour to ensure our curriculum is culturally and socially relevant to the children who make up our school community. As well as making up an important part of our day to day curriculum, this year, the school has also held celebrations for the Autumn and Winter Festivals, including a Diwali Day, Christmas Concerts and a Firework Party organised by our PTA.
Our curriculum leaders and our class teachers ensure there is clear progression of skills and opportunities for creativity, by planning from the National Curriculum Programmes of Study as well as the International Primary Curriculum planning tools. We use our evaluations and assessments to continually update our curriculum maps, and to stay relevant and up to date, we use online resources such as Espresso to ensure that we cover new events on a local, national and international scale. We endeavour to create opportunities for enterprise and ingenuity to prepare children for the future and embrace all opportunities to involve members of our school community in all this processes.
In particular, we are fortunate at Canonbury to work alongside visiting organisations such as Cubitt Artists, who add a different dimension to our curriculum and enable children to learn and develop their skills from professionals.
