Through our chosen curriculum, we aim to prepare our students for adult and working life in the 21st century.
The educational vision and curriculum design for Bunny House School recognizes that:
- Tomorrow’s world will be very different from the world of today.
- The pace of change is increasing, hence the importance for flexibility and creativity.
- Young people have, and will have increasingly, greater access to information and learning material independently of school.
The following section describes the aims and themes that underlie our curriculum at Bunny House School and more details are available about the specific curricula followed in our Early Years and Primary School.
Our Curriculum Aims
At Bunny House, we believe our curriculum should be balanced, broad and relevant to our learners. The key aim for our teaching and learning is to provide opportunities for all pupils to be active learners, to enjoy and to achieve, alongside developing the attributes of confident individuals and responsible global citizens.
Bunny House’s curriculum is based upon the National Curriculum and includes additional learning opportunities that we plan for all our pupils to enhance and extend their learning journey.
Sport, music and drama are important aspects of the school ethos.
Students are given the opportunity to play sport both to develop physically, socially and in competitive fixtures. Sporting activities are run on a ‘sport for all’ basis, while athletes that are more gifted take part in additional coaching sessions, fixtures and tournaments. Bunny House School also takes part in a number of inter-school sporting events through partnerships with other schools.
Swimming training begins from an early age and carries on across all age groups.
Maximizing and celebrating creativity through drama lessons, participating in performances and developing musically, through music lessons and opportunities to learn a musical instrument. Bunny House students are also encouraged to participate in vibrant bands and choirs, either as soloists or as part of an ensemble.
