'a rich and varied curriculum provides pupils with an extensive range of opportunities to fully prepare them for life in modern Britain.'
We shape our curriculum to reflect the ethos, aims and values of our school which are summarised in our motto:
Every Day a Learning Adventure!
Throughout the year we build in a number of curriculum enrichment days and/or weeks where we focus on one aspect of learning or subject area.
At Milton Park we place a strong emphasis on developing creativity in all areas of a broad and rich curriculum and prioritise independence in learning to encourage all our children to make their own choices, as well as supporting each other. Our children are excited by their learning and are able to develop a wide range of skills that they will be able to carry with them throughout life:
