Curriculum Overview

At Caedmon Community Primary School we offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced and builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through the school.


As a community school we are committed to working collaboratively with families, outside agencies and the wider community to achieve shared goals.

The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school.


The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education and so that they can flourish in the wider world.


In all subject areas we incorporate our school values- the 6rs. These teach children to be Ready, Responsible, Resourceful, Reflective, Respectful and Resilient. We believe these values and behaviours are crucial to being a life- long learner. These values are embedded into our curriculum drivers. We have identified 4  key school drivers that are fundamental to supporting our school vision and ethos:

1. Diversity and inclusivity

-Acknowledging that we are individuals, all different and all unique

- using our knowledge and understanding of the world to build a variety of meaningful relationships that are free from discrimination and exclusion

-Showing respect for ourselves and others

2. Aspirations and Careers

-embracing challenges that help us to grow

-understanding that resourcefulness can help us to be the best version of ourselves

-understanding how our learning links to the wider world

-having an awareness of the local labour market


3. Healthy minds and bodies

-knowing that good mental health allows us to develop the resilience we need to help us with challenges we may face

-Knowing that having healthy bodies and mind means we will be ready to learn and have the best chance of success


4. World Citizens

- understanding the world we live in , including the digital world

-environmental awareness and our responsibility to have a positive impact on the environment

-the importance of our place in the community

-reflecting on our own actions and understanding the power our words have


Where possible, we use the local environment to support learning. These learning opportunities support children to recall and draw upon their experiences wherever in the world they continue their education. This is developed through a wide range of experiences and personalised learning contexts.
