Our curriculum


Our curriculum is underpinned by our core values of ambition, creativity, resilience, independence, reflection, inquisitiveness, collaboration, positivity and respect.

When our children leave Sandringham they will have experienced a full, rich, broad and balanced curriculum and fair opportunities to reach their full potential. This should be the case whatever their starting point, needs or social/economic situation. This will reflect pupils’ personal interests and talents, and will allow them to enter an ever-changing world feeling prepared and excited. We will do this by:

  • Stretching the mind

all children, regardless of disadvantage, will have a deep knowledge and understanding of all curriculum subjects. They will read widely and often from high quality texts, and will develop a love of reading. They will be able to use language confidently within a variety of situations and will have the maths skills to support their subsequent learning and real life.

  • Nourishing the spirit

all children will develop strong emotional intelligence, so that they are confident, happy learners who are resilient to the challenges of learning and life.

  • Enriching the imagination

children will develop creativity and will nurture their individual talents. They will express this through their exploration of literature, their appreciation of the arts, exposure to cultural experiences, and through a wide range of quality extra-curricular enrichment activities.

  • Encouraging the will to do good

through the curriculum and a range of leadership opportunities, children will develop responsibility for those around them and for their world.

  • Strengthening the body

our curriculum will support pupils’ physical development and responsibility for their own health, and enable them to be active.

  • Opening the heart to others

our curriculum will enable children to accept, understand and celebrate the similarities and differences of those who are in their school, local community and elsewhere in the world. They will be fully prepared for life in modern Britain and to become global citizens.
