Our Curriculum

Curriculum

At Scunthorpe Church of England Primary School we understand the importance of a well-rounded, fulfilling curriculum to prepare our pupils for the next stage of education, and for their future as citizens of the UK. We are committed to providing our children with a curriculum that has the content to enhance and develop children’s experiences inside and outside of class promoting a thirst for learning. We want our children to –

  • Have a positive attitude about learning new things
  • Have the ability to persevere when challenged
  • Have a sense of possibility
  • Be resourceful
  • Feel supported in their efforts to learn

The Curriculum is appropriate to the needs of the children and covers all the requirements made upon the school in terms of the Foundation Stage Curriculum and National Curriculum. As a school we use Cornerstones as the basis for our topic based learning.

In the Foundation Year all curriculum activities are planned using the curriculum guidance for the Foundation Stage. This curriculum is divided into six areas of learning; Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication, Language and Literacy, Mathematical Development, Knowledge and Understanding of the World, Creative Development and Physical Development.
