Curriculum Information

Gifford’s curriculum intent is to develop curious, confident, resourceful, respectful, resilient and independent individuals and learners whose unique characteristics are recognised and nurtured and whose capabilities are developed to their maximum capacity.


This is achieved by providing a curriculum which:

  • encourages learners’ participation in deciding what is learnt and how;
  • develops learning skills and encourages learners to apply these across the curriculum;
  • is broad, outward-looking, inspiring and challenging;
  • celebrates diversity;
  • includes a broad range of experiences and enrichment activities;
  • develops understanding of the world beyond the school and a positive vision of individual and collective future purpose within it.
