The Shirley Manor Curriculum has 3 ‘drivers’ which are constantly considered when deciding how and what we teach. These are:

Independent Learning


Fresh Experiences


At Shirley Manor we want to develop children’s independence, motivation as learners and their sense of responsibility as future citizens in all our teaching and learning.


We have also been working on our curriculum is design in order to foster thought, curiosity and a desire for learning in all pupils, regardless of their backgrounds, strengths and needs. It provides imaginative starting points through a book based approach, where creatively-linked subjects are enriched by educational trips, inspirational visitors and targeted home learning. Our curriculum aims to be a gateway to opportunity and to a fulfilling and prosperous life in modern Britain and beyond.


We have developed a school mantra GROWTH which links with Growth Mindset and the newly designed curriculum we have been developing.


Going places
