The Department for Education has published guidance on the role of schools in promoting British Values. The link below indicates how Brooklands meets this requirement.
Our curriculum is designed to have a mixture of both discrete and topic based learning. Our topic based approach means that individual subjects are linked and taught through a variety of interesting and engaging topics. Our topics ensure that all areas of the National Curriculum are taught in a joined-up and meaningful way. Mathematics and English are also clearly developed and linked in our topic work, particularly ensuring writing across the curriculum.
The links below provide an overview of teaching in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2:
