Barrow Big Ideas

We believe that our children deserve and need us to provide more than just the National Curriculum. Life has so much more to offer and our children have so much more to learn and experience. With this in mind we worked to prioritise the things we wanted our children to experience and develop during their time with us. We have, therefore, created a set of ‘BIG IDEAS for our curriculum which we believe support us in meeting the needs of our pupils.

These curriculum drivers relate to:

  • the needs of our children here at Barrow
  • the needs of our wider community
  • the values of our school
  • the location of our school

At the core of our BIG IDEAS are Identity, Connection, Legacy, Adventure, Imagination and Possibility. We use these drivers work alongside our school’s Christian values programme to underpin the development work we undertake in all areas of school life and to ensure that our curriculum offer is enriched and personalised to our children and their families.
