Curriculum

Sandling Primary School delivers a broad and balanced curriculum in a welcoming, stimulating and secure environment. A variety of teaching and learning styles and strategies are used to provide opportunities for all children to learn and achieve, and to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.


We provide a creative curriculum based around the National Curriculum with carefully selected topics to meet the needs of our children. We believe in equal opportunities and no ‘ceiling’ to help them to achieve the best they can to be lifelong learners and to prepare them for the next phase of their learning. Our curriculum is designs to draw out our shared values of: Resilience, Independence, Respect, Team Work, Creativity, Risk Taking, Problem Solving and Confidence.


Importance is placed on both academic and social skills to encourage children to become active learners and responsible members of the community. Children will have opportunities to participate in individual, group and whole class activities with an emphasis on the learning being interesting, meaningful and relevant to the child. This is enhanced through both practical experiences and educational visits.


The curriculum is well resourced and supported by visitors to the school. One of our most valued resources is the time given by parents and carers to support children’s learning, both in school and at home.

Details of the curriculum topics being studied in each class are included in the class newsletters as well as our knowledge organisers.
