Future Me: Recognising the Hidden Curriculum
Forming strong foundations that children's futures can be built upon
At Crosshall Junior School, along with most schools in the country, we teach the full range of curriculum subjects. However, there are some matters, skills and processes that do not fit into the everyday curriculum but are essential to develop for a successful adulthood.
A child spends most of his/her life outside of school. What they do external to the school has an impact on life in school, and vice versa. Future Me seeks to recognise the achievements that the child has attained when not in school.
Our Future Me curriculum acknowledges all aspects of pupils' lives and has career-related learning at its core. This careers advice and learning takes place within curriculum subjects, as part of Future Me Talks and through a pupil's own exploration at home.
In all four year groups, pupils work towards achieving pledges that are rewarded with badges that pupils can wear proudly as part of their school uniform.
