The Curriculum

The Vine Schools Curriculum Intent 

At the Vine Schools of Christian Malford, Seagry and Walter Powell, our curriculum is driven by the need to foster children’s growth in all aspects of life, including interpersonal skills and critical thinking as well as academic knowledge.  

Our curriculum has been designed to excite and engage. We recognise that life isn’t divided into different subjects, and in doing so, we braid learning objectives from across the curriculum together through topic based enquiry. We build upon our children’s prior experiences, both in and outside of school, and look to craft a clear, individualised learning journey through their time at the Vine.  

Through direct teaching, our curriculum is designed to guide children in establishing values that are important to them. This will be facilitated by teaching of our whole school ‘GRAPES’ values, a foundation in British Values and planned opportunities to discuss and consider real world problems.  

All of our teaching is founded on the National Curriculum. The Core Subjects are: 

  • English

The Foundation Subjects are: 

  • Computing 
  • Art
