New vision and Curriculum drivers for Autumn 2019

The Curriculum


At Hopton we teach a broad and balanced curriculum that intends to excite and engage all pupils. Each half term the teachers plan a thematic approach to learning in their classroom based around the schools new curriculum drivers.

Curriculum drivers

Over the last two years we have worked to develop a new school vision ( this can be found on our welcome and vision page) and curriculum drivers for the school. Working in co production with the children, parents, staff and Governors we have designed  bespoke curriculum drivers, unique to Hopton CEVC School. These curriculum drivers reflect what we consider to be the essential diet for the children in our school. They are cemented in the roots of our vision and aim to give the children a broad and balanced exposure to learning.
