At Bude Park Primary School we have developed a curriculum that reflects our school community and the changes to the National Curriculum. We aim to work in partnership with parents to achieve the best outcomes for every child.
Through our rich and stimulating curriculum our aim is that every child will develop a joy for learning and gain the knowledge, skills and attributes which will ensure that they are well-prepared for secondary education and enable them to lead happy, fulfilling and successful lives in the future. We want our children to grow in confidence and maturity and the ability to pursue throughout their lives academic, social and cultural activities. We provide a religious education which is broadly Christian whilst taking into account the principles and practices of the other main faiths.
We acknowledge that people learn in many different ways so opportunities are planned to cater for a range of different learning styles to ensure that all children can access the curriculum and learn in a way that is best for them. Our curriculum develops constructive attitudes and qualities, promotes the importance of healthy living and emphasises the value of personal relationships based on mutual respect.
We are delighted that from September members of Opera North’s education department will be working two days a week in our school. The aim of this ‘Singing Sistema’ is that it will have a positive impact on children’s aspirations, learning outcomes and engagement in school life, through regular music tuition and performance opportunities. All of our children will take part in integrated singing and movement sessions. They will also participate in choirs and the project will have close links with the Chorus of Opera North.
This 'Singing Sistema' project is the first scheme of its kind to focus specifically on singing and movement, inspired by the hugely successful El Sistema programme in Venezuela. It has grown out of the success of In Harmony Opera North, which is an orchestra-focused project delivered by Opera North at Windmill Primary School in Leeds. A range of funding has been secured in order to help make 'Singing Sistema' possible, including donations from national education charities and local businesses who are supporting the project over the coming three years.
