At The Mount Junior School we teach a bespoke curriculum through a carefully balanced combination of specialist teaching and creative thinking.
We harness our children’s naturally inquisitive encouraging them to explore and question. Our aim is to provide our pupils with a deep foundation of skills knowledge and attitudes that will equip them to thrive at school, university and long into their lives. Whilst the exact nature of their future careers is hard to predict, our Curriculum is designed to develop 21st Century skills – using your imagination, problem solving, independent thinking, and digital literacy.
The building blocks for our pupil’s education are English and Maths, there is a strong focus on developing literacy and numeracy with daily lessons taught class teachers in each subject. English lessons are designed to lay the foundations of literacy, reading, and writing as well as sparking children’s imagination. Maths lessons provide a grounding in key mathematical concepts, using a ‘mastery’ approach and problem-solving skills.
Explore, Discover, Create
The ‘Creative Curriculum’, known as ‘Explore, Discover, Create’ covers the traditional subjects of History, Geography, Science, Art, Design Technology and Music, but taught in a thematic way. The Creative Curriculum is all about Creative Thinking, exploring, discovering and creating with your mind.
From Reception upwards, French, Music and Games lessons are taught by subject specialists. Having the flexibility to access specialist teaching and facilities is one of the many advantages to sharing our site with the Senior School.
