Our curriculum is knowledge rich and concept driven; we believe that learning should be progressive, purposeful and apply subject-specific skills every single day. We want our children to leave the Mount Stewart Federation as culturally literate and well-rounded individuals. We want to produce entrepreneurs, collaborators, investigators, leaders and, ultimately, children who are equipped to deal with the challenges of modern life – wherever that may take them.
At the centre of our curriculum, we have our Mount Stewart learner and the three core areas that our parents have identified as most important for us to develop in their child at school. Surrounding this, are our 7R’s which encompass our learning behaviours at school. We aim to incorporate these behaviours in all aspects of school life. Next we have our drivers which help drive and shape our concept curriculum and are incorporated across all concepts. Finally, the outer edge shows the 20 core concepts that underpin our curriculum at Mount Stewart. These have been carefully chosen from the National Curriculum and are taught through a variety of interesting and exciting topics and themes. Our children are exposed to these again and again on their journey through school.
