Learning & Curriculum
At Masefield Primary School we take pride in ensuring that all children are safe, happy and valued. Through an inspiring and creative curriculum, our children experience opportunities to shine and achieve their potential. We provide a motivating and challenging environment, where all their achievements are celebrated. Children are encouraged to become successful, confident and independent learners, equipping them with skills to make a positive contribution to the local, wider and global community. As a fundamental part of our commitment and vision to develop successful young adults who have resilience, determination and motivation, our school is embedded with a variety of enriching opportunities for pupils.
In KS2, our pupils take part in a wide range of activities that complement the National Curriculum and develops key knowledge, life skills and social responsibilities. An example of this is each KS2 year group get the opportunity to take part in our Forest Schools. This enrichment is led by a qualified Forest School practioner who guides the children through multiple outdoor survival skills
Pupils also take part in new activities and/or experiences which include gardening, fundraising, mindfulness, cookery, textiles and journalism. Each sessions are led by exceptional members of staff who plan and deliver motivating and inspiring sessions which include visitors, local visits and memorable experiences.
