At Millfield Primary

Engage - Enquire - Excel 

at Millfield


We believe our children learn best when they are as engaged as they can be in their learning and when they have the opportunity to enquire. With this in mind, we have adopted a Learning Challenge Curriculum; this is an enquiry based approach to learning and focuses on following children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn. The design of the curriculum is based around a series of prime and subsidiary learning challenges – all expressed as questions, many of which are those that the children themselves wish to explore. The curriculum is knowledge rich and skills driven; it follows the National Curriculum and all subjects are taught to all children.
