College Road Primary School

At College Road we take a flexible and creative approach to learning. We have designed a skills-based, exciting curriculum which has learning at its' heart, centred on the Building Learning Powers initiative developed by Guy Claxton. In addition to this, we are committed to involving the children, parents and governors of the school in helping staff to construct our curriculum, via the 'Real MAD Voices' group. At College Road, each class decides their own topics and projects for each term, and at least 75% of learning opportunities are cross-curricular. For this reason, there is no set project/ topic cycle - this changes every year to reflect the interests of the children and staff. For details of each year group's learning and topics, please see our website's 'Year pages' section. We do of course recognise that our curriculum reflects the need to equip the children with basic skills; we believe the best way to do this is to provide real and exciting opportunities to apply this learning.
