Curriculum Overviews

Curriculum IntentWe want to create a curriculum that gives children a sense of pride about living where they do yet shows them the multi-cultural world that exists beyond Redcar.
It will also give children a wide range of opportunities, developing resilience and promoting the belief that through determination anyone can do anything irrespective of background.

In 2014 the government introduced a new National Curriculum. Although the new curriculum is intended to be more challenging, the content is actually slimmer than the old curriculum, focusing on essential core subject knowledge and skills. A copy of the full National Curriculum can be found here

Our Teaching & Learning Policy explains how we aim to deliver this curriculum. We want to create a curriculum that gives children a sense of pride about living where they do, yet shows them the multi-cultural world that exists beyond Redcar. It will also give children a wide range of opportunities, developing resilience and promoting the belief that through determination anyone can do anything irrespective of background.
