Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to match our schools relentless drive to give our children the greatest possible range of choices as adults.

Our curriculum  objective is to equip all our children with the key skills of communication and collaboration. We expect all our adults to provide the children with first-hand experiences, knowledge and the necessary skills to articulate what they have learnt in a clear and informative way. This is developed through our clear teaching and learning focus on communication and collaboration.

Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We welcome and celebrate differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by our HEART values. Bligh is a school with HEART. Honesty, Empathy, Achievement, Resilience and Teamwork. These are the virtues we believe lead to the formation of healthy and positive relationships.

Our community is an essential part of the curriculum, which is why we chose to focus on using the surrounding local area to deepen the children’s understanding, making them experts of their locality throughout their learning journey.

Children leave Bligh with a sense of belonging, the ability to work independently, in pairs or as part of a team in collaboration. They can communicate effectively what they have learnt, gather a wealth of knowledge and skills through all areas of the curriculum.

Working with the children at Bligh Primary School is a privilege. We have a clear understanding of how our children learn and expect this to be evident, over time, in the work we do.
