Curriculum Intent

Children at Sunny Bank will develop a GROWTH MINDSET becoming REFLECTIVE lifelong learners with high ASPIRATIONS. Our carefully sequenced curriculum will provide all of our learners with the BEST EXPERIENCES, the SKILLS THAT THEY NEED TO THRIVE IN LIFE and enable them to be the best they can be, making a positive contribution to the world they live in.


We are a school at the centre of our local community and through this our children become CONFIDENT individuals equipped with the RESILIENCE and EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE to build strong healthy RELATIONSHIPS.

Whole school subject aims:

  • All subject teaching places a high emphasis on “language for learning” where topic and subject specific vocabulary is introduced, discussed, and explored. 
  • Children are expected to read in every curriculum subject.
  • Each subject is adapted according to the needs to every learner. We offer an inclusive curriculum that all children thrive in.
  • Our curriculum topics have been carefully chosen and allow for children to learn more and remember more.
  • Lessons are planned carefully following our curriculum road maps to ensure coverage across every subject and clear progressions.
  • Learning environments have a range of working walls and displays to showcase children’s work. These are referred to throughout the teaching of the curriculum. Displays are language rich which supports learning.  
  • Every term, a hook and exit point is planned for each topic to ignite their children’s passion for learning and to work towards a goal at the end of the term.
  • Our curriculum is rooted in our core values which are: Resilience, Optimism, Ambition and Responsibility.
