At Southglade, our book based curriculum offers a range of curriculum topics which have strong links to Britain both past and present. As a school, we encourage knowledge of current affairs that are significant to us as a nation.
Across all years, there is a strong focus on the work of famous British figures both past and present; these include Florence Nightingale, Winston Churchill and Queen Victoria. The children really enjoy learning about people from the past and in particular those who have had an impact on the modern world who were from our local community. These include Jesse Boot who transformed Boots into the “chemist for the nation” and Brian Clough in the sporting world.
