Castle Hill Curriculum
Castle Hill Infant and Junior Schools recognise every child as equal, unique and valuable. The potential of every child will be nurtured, in order to develop their self-esteem and enable them to build strong, positive relationships with other people. They will be engaged in purposeful learning activities and have the opportunity to experience real achievement academically, socially and emotionally.
Pride; Ambition; Respect
Our Curriculum Drivers
‘Nurture, engage, inspire, achieve’
Our Curriculum Vision
Our children will experience a creative, inclusive and challenging curriculum that inspires future thinkers, innovators and problem solvers in an environment that stimulates and supports high quality learning. To ensure that all learners exceed their potential academically, socially and emotionally ensuring they become ambitious and life-long learners.
At Castle Hill, we begin every term with a ‘Stunning Start’, to hook and engage our children as they embark on a new learning journey. Stunning Starts inspire our pupils to be inquisitive, learn new skills and discover more about the world around them. Previous ‘Stunning Starts’ have included live jousting on our school field, a circus coming to Castle Hill, Abra Ca David demonstrating the magic of Science, returning to our school flooded with plastic and a theatre production about animal conservation!
Every term's learning has a purpose and ends with a ‘Fabulous Finish’ where our children share their outcomes and display their learning with pride to our school community. Our ‘Fabulous Finishes’ always end our learning with a buzz: a circus production, a medieval banquet, history exhibition, science fair and an eco-show, to name just a few. These experiences prepare our children for the opportunities and responsibilities later in life; promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of our children.
‘Mini-hooks’ are planned within year groups throughout each term to continue to inspire and engage pupils with experiences more specific to their year group’s learning, these could include visitors, trips or focused learning days or activities.

We have trained anti-bullying and anti-racism ambassadors who have run campaigns and championed diversity and inclusion across our school. Some of our anti-racism ambassadors recently performed at a Respect Showcase event at Unicorn Theatre in London. We received amazing feedback.
'We just wanted to say a MASSIVE well done for yesterday! Your performance was incredible; you all spoke with passion and confidence, and everyone at The Diana Award has told us how brilliant you are. You definitely got the loudest cheer out of everyone. You should all be so SO proud of yourselves, as I know we are. Keep up the incredible work that you’re all doing.'
