Curriculum

We work hard to ensure all children at Priory receive a broad, balanced and creative curriculum which engages and challenges them. The Priory Values are at the heart of what we do. We have high expectations of our staff and children. We encourage them to be problem solvers with a positive attitude to learning and the capacity that learning has to change lives. We make sure our school is an inclusive, stimulating environment that reflects and celebrates our creative learning approach. Our curriculum is based around themes or topics, which change each half term. These topics are broad, encompassing elements of history, geography and science and are always supported by the use of high quality texts. We ensure that children have the opportunity to go on a variety of educational visits that help to put children’s learning into context and bring it alive. We want the children to be curious and ask questions that will shape the learning in their class. We want pupils to persevere, and reflect on learning and to be able to go back and improve their work. Further information on the current curriculum can be found here.
