We teach an exciting, skills based and experience driven curriculum to ensure our children understand the diversity of the world around us, their place within it and the skills they need to succeed.
The children study the core subjects of the New National Curriculum, with daily rehearsal of the key skills for Reading, Writing and Maths taking place in focused phonics, number, calculation, handwriting, reading and grammar sessions.
All our learners are given the opportunity to apply these skills through engaging and enjoyable thematic teaching where other subjects such as History, Geography, ICT, Religious Education and Science are delivered and underpinned by tangible real life experiences provided by Educational Visits and specialist visitors.
Our pupils take part in a rich and varied Physical Education curriculum which develops their fitness, physical skills and allows them to compete in a diverse range of sports against children of similar abilities from both within and beyond our school community. This provision extends to many evenings and weekends for the many of our students who wish to attend.
Children are given the opportunity to excel creatively through themed art & design weeks, family art sessions and participation in inspirational choir sessions and singing assemblies. At Great Malvern we actively teach values to all our children, learning about a new value each half-term across the whole school as an important part of each child’s personal, social and moral development.
We also practice an innovative new approach called Thrive to ensure our learners become happy, confident and resilient individuals. We carefully and passionately support children from disadvantaged backgrounds and those who have special educational needs or disabilities.
