At Queensbridge we have an inclusive curriculum with a holistic approach that is relevant to all learners and reflects the communities we are part of. We celebrate one another’s cultural diversity and learn about different faiths and traditions. This creative curriculum is driven by our school values (perseverance, respect, possibilities and collaboration) so that learners develop a broad and deep understanding of key skills in curriculum subjects as well as becoming spiritually, morally and culturally aware of the national and global society we live in.
At Queensbridge we teach using a bespoke creative, topic based curriculum so that children can make connections across all areas of their learning. It allows for progression as the children build on their skills each year. The topics develop each year from in Year 1 learning about The Great Fire of London to comparing London and Nepal in Year 6. Objectives are repeated in a number of meaningful and exciting ways. Creative workshops and experiences are utilized such as an opera visiting the school. We have strong links with local art galleries, theaters, music venues and museums. Our children benefit from a wide range of enrichment activities such as music performances at the Tower of London, community print making workshops and legacy art projects.
At Queensbridge we want to create reflective, engaged and excited learners. Our pupils are stimulated to be curious and ask questions. We aim to develop them to be independent and we encourage a growth mindset. Children know how to extend themselves. Our children recognise that failure and making mistakes is part of the learning process, encouraging them to take risks.
Pupils make outstanding progress because the teaching is outstanding and pupils are enthusiastic learners…topics are introduced throughout the school, giving teachers more opportunities to develop pupils’ skills across different subjects. For example, older pupils combine literacy and historical skills in a study of Britain during the Second World War. Pupils are very enthusiastic about this development, and they help in the planning. Music provision is another of the school’s strengths. Pupils love the visits and opportunities to participate in events such as the Hackney Music Festival.
