Education for liberation

The importance of a broad and balanced curriculum in primary schools can never be underestimated and how best to ensure this has recently come to the top of the agenda for Ofsted. Since the statutory changes in England in 2014 we have been working hard to make sure that all subjects have equal weighting at Bevington. We believe this is essential in developing the whole child. Some schools narrow their curriculum offer and only use their clubs and trips to add experiences to children’s learning. We know, like you, that art, music, PE, PSHE, science, the humanities, RE and computing are just as important as the core subjects and Bevington pupils thrive in all these areas. We know education changes futures and doing what you love can only support this. We are glad to see the Arts Council are commissioning a piece of work to make sure all children have access to a varied curriculum, like the one you see in the best schools such as Bevington .We’d be happy to show them how it’s done!
