Our Curriculum

At The Bythams we have adopted a Learning Challenge Curriculum where children’s learning is creative and cross-curricular.

Our pupils learn, practice, combine, develop and refine a wide range of skills in their work across the National Curriculum. Some of these skills are subject specific and some are common to several subjects.

Curriculum information for individual year groups can be found on our class pages.

Growth Mindset

Bythams Primary School is a Growth Mindset school.

People in a fixed mindset believe you either are or aren’t good at something, based on your inherent nature, because it’s just who you are.

People in a growth mindset believe anyone can be good at anything, because your abilities are entirely due to your actions.

For example:

  • In a fixed mindset, you believe “She’s a natural born singer” or “I’m just no good at dancing.”
  • In a growth mindset, you believe “Anyone can be good at anything. Skill comes only from practice.”
  • In a growth mindset, you keep up your confidence by always pushing into the unfamiliar, to make sure you’re always learning.
  • In a growth mindset, you commit to mastering valuable skills regardless of mood, knowing passion and purpose come from doing great work, which comes from expertise and experience.
