Our Approach To The Curriculum

Our Approach To The Curriculum

The provision of an exciting curriculum is pivotal to how children learn and develop during their time at school. We are determined that our curriculum will be rich, broad and deep and personalised to the unique needs of our pupils. 

We follow a knowledge engaged approach, where knowledge is a focus but underpins and enables the application of skills.  Within year groups, over arching topics have been carefully chosen to interest and engage our pupils and also allow depth of learning.  Staff plan and teach lessons which link aspects of the curriculum together in a meaningful way, through a thematic approach.  Links are made where possible between subjects, without losing sight of specific subject disciplines.  Learning also occurs outside of the thematic approach with some subjects e.g. Maths, PE, Computing, RE and French taught discretely.

All staff are involved in regular curriculum review to ensure that our aims are met effectively.  

We deliver a curriculum that prepares children for the next stage of their lives, promoting an appreciation of life in modern Britain and instilling in children a sense of the core British values to enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

At Eppleton Academy Primary School, we are committed to delivering a high quality and stimulating curriculum that not only meets the current Statutory Framework, but also provides opportunities for creativity, risk-taking, independence and success.
