The Burton Fields Curriculum
At Burton Fields School we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which recognises individual needs and encourages all children to reach their maximum potential; emotionally, socially and intellectually.
We believe that all children have the right to a good quality education which enables them to become effective and knowledgeable twenty-first century citizens in the global society in which they live.
This belief has provided the underlying philosophy of our bespoke Burton Fields curriculum, and our drivers include global citizenship, environmental awareness and enterprise education alongside science, learning from the past, technology, creative arts, and health and wellbeing. We also place importance on the value of religious education and learning about other people.
Underpinning our whole curriculum is our commitment to the Unicef 'Rights Respecting Schools' strategy and the promotion of British values.
You can find further information for parents about our cross-curricular topics on the Lower KS2 and Upper KS2 pages.
As per our EFA academy funding agreement, we follow the National Curriculum 2014 requirements for English, Maths and Science and these subjects form an integral part of our Burton Fields Curriculum.
