Our Curriculum

We follow the National Curriculum but take full advantage of the permitted flexibility to ensure that our curriculum is both challenging and fun!

Two senior staff members from our Federation attended training on 'Developing and Delivering an Innovative Curriculum' based on the new National Curriculum, which will be implemented in September 2014. The HT and another member of staff attended Essentials Curriculum training in 2014.

We are fortunate to have a wealth of natural and human resources available to us in our immediate locality, and we put a strong emphasis on making learning real by focusing on our locality. For example, a topic on materials has included a visit to the local recycling centre and a nearby brickworks and weekly fieldwork, over a half term period, allowed a detailed study of the river at Hodge Beck. Younger pupils visit the local vets and bakers, complete traffic surveys of the A170 and learn about local history. Sustainability including the global element is a thread which is woven throughout the curriculum.

In addition, we have a number of regular week long themes where children learn, often through problem solving in mixed age, mixed ability groups. These include; science week, book week,  and the Christmas and Summer productions.   We  also aim to include wider themes such as Red Nose Day, Fair Trade Fortnight, Sports Relief and the Olympics within our broader curriculum plans. 

We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is relevant to our pupils, rooted in the local environment and focused on the acquisition, practice and application of skills within a range of contexts drawn from the National Curriculum.
