At Shakespeare we aim to celebrate our community and vast cultures by encouraging pupils to think in new ways about the world. Leeds is at the heart of our curriculum and is a key thread throughout. We want to ensure that the pupils understand where they are globally, nationally and locally. Our curriculum celebrates the diversity of cultures that exist within our community and the wider world. We want to evoke curiosity about the world and its people, promoting questions that children are enthusiastic to answer. We want children to be able to articulate their own views on world matters, to be informed and environmentally conscious. We are focused on building cultural capital through experiences and developing geographical skills, through fieldwork in our local area and beyond. We are focused on the children developing a greater understanding of the wider world through sharing experiences and learning from one another. We want to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deeper understanding of physical and human themes. We want to inspire children to think about their own place in the world, their values, and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment.
