Bearbrook Combined School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust


Curriculum Implementation

At Bearbrook our curriculum is carefully planned so that all pupils experience a relevant, inspiring and diverse learning journey.  It is based upon the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) to ensure that there is good coverage and progression across the school.


We structure pupils learning so that they experience real life contexts that represent the community and world in which they live.


All subjects have a clear curriculum statement and rigorous skills progression grids which ensure that key subject-specific learning is embedded throughout the whole curriculum.  This is assessed by classifying learning outcomes in terms of complexity, allowing us to assess mastery across the curriculum by focusing on depth of knowledge rather than simply coverage.
