The Poplars Curriculum (please see the Poplars Curriculum tab)

 The video below is an example of the impact of the Poplars Curriculum. It shows how quality writing stems from pupils' genuine interest and motivation. Real world tasks provide this. It shows the high profile of oracy and language learning. It shows by giving our pupils a platform (in this caes hundreds of educators involved in the global network for deep learning and to schools from across the MENA region) leads to pupils feeling valued...listened to, leading to even more motivation. It leads to increased confidence and self belief and fosters a sense of pride in our school and a sense of working in partnership. Through building on previous knowledge acquisition and creating links through the Poplars Biggest Ideas, our pupils become informed, prepared and equiped to face the future. Children matter...

Our GROW approach to the full opening of


G- giving

We will give priority to the safety of pupils, staff and the wider community. We will do this by minimising the risks brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, balancing them against our school’s vision whilst considering the short term and long-term benefits to pupils and community.


We will value the emotional well-being of staff, and of pupils and their families, as they return to school, recognising the present and past impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will ensure that pupils access the full curriculum and reignite their love and enjoyment of learning. We will seek a current understanding of each child, in order to adapt and deliver our curriculum, and provide targeted support based on each pupil’s social, health, emotional, physical and academic needs. We recognise that pupils’ experiences since March 2020, will have differed considerably.


We will look to minimise disruption, inconvenience and emotional distress caused by future lockdowns, local lockdowns, partial closures or absences of pupils and/or staff due to self-isolation and/or Covid-19 related illness. We will build on the innovative working practices and curriculum offer that we developed during lockdown. We will maintain our commitment to high quality learning and achievement be it at school or when delivering learning remotely.


All pupils and staff will be warmly welcomed back to school. With a positive mindset, we will embrace ‘the new norm’ and look to ways to build school unity and a sense of belonging for each and everyone who attends Poplars Farm Primary School.
