Braddan School

Show Respect ~ Learn Together ~ Try Your Best

At Braddan School we use the Department of Education and Children's Curriculum for Learning and Achievement, that aims to help young people be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, positively contribute and prosper. A key part of helping children to achieve these outcomes is be developing the 6Rs - Readiness, Resilience, Remembering, Resourcefulness, Relationships and Reflectiveness. These help children to learn about learning, and how they can overcome difficulties. At Braddan we also help children to develop a positive growth mindset for learning.

The school has developed a subject curriculum that covers English, Maths, Art and Design, Design Technology, Geography, History, Music, PE, Personal, Social and Health Education, Fiscal Awareness, SRE, Religious Education, Science, Outdoor Learning and ICT.
In addition to this Braddan has its own Metacognition Curriculum that includes Growth Mindset, Children's Rights and Responsibilities, Bloom's Taxonomy, The 6Rs of learning, and the four Cs of thinking (critical, creative, caring and collaborative) that support the children in P4C (Philosophy for Children).

Each half term you will receive a curriculum letter from your child's class teacher that gives an overview of the main aspects being covered, along with ideas for how you can help support your child at home. (We will also publish this on the classroom page on this website.)
