The Curriculum at Broadheath
The aim of the curriculum at Broadheath is to make a significant contribution towards meeting the individual needs of all pupils so they will reach their full potential in terms of physical, intellectual, social, emotional, creative and moral development.
Learning and teaching are based on a whole school approach, within the context of a broad, balanced curriculum and upon the acquisition of skills, knowledge and understanding, attitudes and values. Learning and teaching opportunities are planned using clear objectives from detailed schemes of work and syllabi including- Early Years Foundation Stage, National Curriculum and the Trafford R.E agreed syllabus.
Curriculum maps for each year group are available to download on this page and a more detailed explanation of the curriculum for each subject can be found on these pages:
Have a Growth Mindset
The term ‘growth mindset’ refers to a way of thinking, learning and taking on challenges. A person with a growth mindset is open to constructive criticism, takes feedback and uses it, takes on new challenges, pushes themselves outside of their comfort zone and shows resilience and perseverance.
Studies show that it is people with a growth mindset (as opposed to a fixed mindset) who achieve in life, are successful in all they do and are happy. Of course, this is exactly what we want for all our children.
At Broadheath Primary School, a ‘growth mindset’ is embedded in all that we do and our pupils know that they are expected to challenge themselves, to know their own goals and recognise the obstacles that they need to overcome to achieve these.

Habits of Mind / metacognition
At Broadheath, we want our pupils to understand how they learn and to be able to confidently speak about the processes that they undertake. To support this, we use our ‘Broadheath Habits of Mind’ which are 10 habits that reflect the key processes that we believe make successful learners.
