Curriculum Overview

Vision – Our school vision is to ensure that all learners achieve their potential through the broad curriculum and extra-curricular activities we offer.  High expectations are non-negotiable and are evidenced through everyday life at school together with more formal monitoring activities.  The vision's fundamental aim is to raise standards across all areas of school life.  We seek to develop each individual as a whole to ensure that when they leave Dronfield Junior School, they are a resilient, well-rounded citizen with a strong moral purpose. 


Our curriculum is skills based and knowledge rich.  We want to produce exceptional outcomes whilst developing children’s independence, curiosity, resilience and creativity.  We want to produce collaborators, leaders and innovators that have a thirst for life-long learning.  We want our pupils to understand their own emotional health and wellbeing and how address their own happiness.  We are continuing on our journey to build, adapt, review and refresh our curriculum so that it addresses the needs and aspirations of our pupils.  Our curriculum will inspire our pupils to develop deeper thinking skills so they learn to question, reflect and innovate.  Our pupils will be the voices of the future and we want them to leave us as confident, caring individuals that want to make a difference to future society.
