At Sedbergh Primary School we have developed and implemented our own Creative Curriculum in order to deliver a broad and balanced learning experience for all children in school. Our curriculum also fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum in spirit and detail, and the requirements of the locally agreed syllabus for Religious Education (SACRE).
Each year, teachers update a Curriculum Map for each class in school. These grids provide an overview of the projects, knowledge and skills each child will be taught during that year. The grids also evidence how children progress through our curriculum, each week, each project, each term and each year. Use the ‘Class Pages’ tab on the menu above to learn more about what is taught and how the curriculum is delivered in each class.
Our Values, Vision and Focus
We have linked one or more of our 8 Values to each of the subjects we learn about in school. This helps us to understand how our learning links to our Vision for the children who attend our school. When learning in R.E., we develop our ability to Respect other people in the world. When learning in science and P.E., we develop our understanding of how our choices, in terms of exercise and diet, affect our Health.
When learning in class, we understand what is important, and this helps us to think carefully and Focus on our learning. Click on the Values button to find out more about our Values, Vision and Focus.
