Curriculum Statement

At Caedmon Primary School, we follow a broad and balanced curriculum which prepares pupils with the essential knowledge and skills for their future. Our curriculum takes children on their journey from Nursery right through to Year 6: our Early Years curriculum for Nursery and Reception pupils follows the ‘Early Years Framework’ which then links into Years 1-6 where we follow the National Curriculum delivering a full range of subjects. We have designed a sequenced and progressive long term planning format to ensure that lessons build on prior knowledge and enable our pupils to know more and remember more. Please visit our Early Years page and subject pages within this section of the website to find out more.

Our curriculum is inspiring and challenging, in order to offer pupils opportunities to grow as unique individuals as well as learners. Pupils are given opportunities for practical hands-on experiences for active learning, collaboration, oracy and enquiry. These experiences allow the children to develop their interpersonal skills, build resilience, develop their curiosity and become creative, critical thinkers who enjoy learning.

Our curriculum is designed to reflect local history, geography and people and ensure that our pupils have wider experiences. It provides a base around which teachers develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum. Lessons are enhanced by visits, visitors or experiences (including a varied careers programme) to stimulate and engage children and provide exciting opportunities for our pupils to deepen their understanding and learn about the world around them.

The Caedmon Characteristics

We want our pupils to be the best they can be! We use the Caedmon Characteristics to actively promote positive attitudes to learning to ensure our pupils are prepared for their next stage in education and for life in modern Britain:

  • Confident – ‘We are successful because we are resilient and confident in ourselves and our abilities. We never give up!’
  • Ambitious – ‘We want to be successful and always achieve our best.’
  • Respectful – ‘We are always kind, polite and friendly to one another and accept each other for who we are.’
  • Engaged – ‘We are eager and ready to learn. We contribute in all our lessons with enthusiasm and positivity.’

We also offer our pupils new and exciting experiences through a range of extra-curricular activities, educational visits, leadership opportunities for pupils and careers events that are designed to help pupils to become well-rounded individuals.
