Curriculum Intent

Our Curriculum

Together we can…


At Cleves Cross Primary and Nursery School we believe that our ethos of ‘Together we can…’ ensures that each and every child achieves.

Our curriculum is bespoke to the needs of our pupils, not only by focussing on appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum, but by also providing extracurricular experiences that seek to nurture talents and abilities and prepare our children for life in modern Britain.

Our aim is to create a happy, secure and sustainable environment where children can explore, investigate, listen and discuss in order to become independent, mature and well-motivated learners. They develop positive attitudes, think critically and make valuable contributions, as global citizens, to our community and the wider world.

Our curriculum is designed to ensure we meet these aims and that children become life-long learners. From the earliest years in school, right through to being ready to move on to the next stage in their education, our pupils learn and develop through progressive, engaging study. The curriculum builds the skills and knowledge that give children the tools to thrive. Experiences are planned to immerse pupils in their learning – academic and social – and these are carefully chosen to enable pupils to appreciate the wealth of culture and diversity in their local area and the wider world enhanced by our international school links and projects.

Integral to our school is our Rights Respecting and Eco-School ethos. Our curriculum encompasses these in both explicit teaching of themes and implicit references across other curriculum areas. We timetable special activities across each year to celebrate and highlight our learning and these enhance our day-to-day classroom activities too.

When designing our curriculum provision, we have ensured that learning is structured and developmental; relevant and engaging; challenging, aspirational and accessible to all. At the heart of our curriculum is our commitment to the well-being of the whole school community and to nurturing the talents and individuality of everyone.
