Our School Curriculum


Our curriculum has been designed to ensure each and every child can ‘live life in all its fullness’ by offering stimulating and awe-inspiring learning experiences, making the most of the local environment and beyond with Christian values at its heart. 

Our pupils learn best when learning is linked, meaningful and has a purpose.  We provide our children with the knowledge, skills and understanding (as set out in the National Curriculum) they will need in order to progress to the next stage of their learning journey.  We know the importance and benefit of providing our children with first-hand experiences and building their cultural capital so we ensure that there are plenty of opportunities for educational visits and visitors to further enhance our curriculum.   

We are a small, rural school with a nurturing and inclusive ethos which permeates our curriculum, making our pupils feel safe to take risks with their learning.  We feel it is vital our pupils have knowledge of where they live and its history as well as ensuing they develop a broader view on both a national and international scale.


Through high quality first teaching of knowledge, skills and understanding across all subjects, our children are challenged to be the best they can be. 

Teaching and learning across the school is based on building knowledge and skills as outlined in our progression documents for each subject, all linked to the National Curriculum.  Teachers carefully plan to ensure knowledge is built up over time and revisited to ensure learning has the opportunity to ‘stick’ in the long-term memory. 

A two-year rolling programme is used across Key Stage 1 and a three-year programme across Year 3, 4 and 5.  Year 6 have their own annual programme.  This ensures our children are provided with a broad and balanced curriculum, encompassing local, national and international studies.  Where possible and appropriate, curriculum areas are linked by a central theme to give our children the opportunity to make meaningful connections between subjects.  If a subject does not lend itself to the central theme, it is taught discretely.      

Schemes of work and educational approaches have been carefully chosen to enable us to provide the highest quality educational offer to our children. 

To read more about the implementation of particular subject areas within our curriculum, please see our individual subject rationales.   


Our children will be able to recall knowledge they have learned and make meaningful links between areas of learning.  They will gain substantial , powerful knowledge, skills and Christian values which will prepare them for the next stage of their learning journey into secondary school and life beyond.
