At Eppleton Academy Primary we believe an exciting curriculum is central 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, most subjects are taught discreetly and where appropriate, staff plan and teach lessons which link aspects of the curriculum together in a meaningful way. We believe that this approach ensures our curriculum engages our pupils and also allows for depth of learning.
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. It is important to us that we nurture excellence and support learning for life.
At Eppleton Academy Primary School, we are committed to delivering a high quality and stimulating curriculum, that also provides opportunities for creativity, risk-taking, independence and success.
We follow the National Curriculum with the key drivers of Raising Aspirations, Community and Levelling the Playing Field. Our schools values: Respect, Responsibility and Resilience are interweaved throughout curriculum ensuring our children have a deep understanding of these.
To ensure that our aims are met effectively, all staff are currently involved in further curriculum review and development.
We hope that you find this curriculum information useful, if you require further information about the curriculum please contact your child's class teacher or Miss Defty (Assistant Head Teacher) for further information.
