Henry Cavendish Curriculum Intent

Our Curriculum


‘Growing Together’, our school motto, encapsulates what the curriculum at Henry Cavendish offers our children, and what it means for us as a learning community.  Every day, in every lesson, in a supportive and happy environment, children are encouraged to think deeper, and challenge themselves further. They are supported to recognise and pursue their own unique talents and interests, whilst developing a positive, growth mindset about their own challenges.


The spirit of this also guides the way our curriculum is designed, reviewed, evaluated and adapted by our staff team. Through action research, consultation with staff and Governors, feedback from our school community and professional development, we constantly explore and seek out new ways to provide even stronger, broader opportunities for our children.


This is how we strive to all meet our potential and, as a Unicef Rights Respecting school, aim to be the best we can be. This is how we grow together.


The following six aims form our intent and underpin all aspects of our curriculum design:


  1. Our curriculum will represent, value and celebrate the diverse society in which we live
  2. All children will develop into confident, articulate communicators.
  3. All children will be challenged.
  4. The topic and content of our Curriculum will be varied, immersive and engaging.
  5. All children will use their creativity.
  6. All children will become happy, empathetic and confident citizens.
