Curriculum Rationale

Egglescliffe CE Primary School Curriculum Rationale

We encourage all learners to be the best they can be based on Matthew 5.16 , ‘Let your light shine.’

At Egglescliffe CE Primary School, we have designed an aspirational curriculum with pupils’ learning at the centre. We recognise that a curriculum has to be broad, balanced, inspiring and challenging in order to offer pupils opportunities to grow as unique individuals as well as learners. We endeavour to enrich our curriculum with experiential learning and deepening understanding opportunities which we believe is fundamentally important. As an inclusive Christian family learning and growing together, our school values the input of its pupils, parents and the local community with regards to the planning and delivery of the curriculum. We believe that investing in our pupils holistically creates opportunities for them to shine as individuals - ‘Let your light shine’.

We aim to ensure pupils enjoy learning and feel prepared for life after school. We also intend to offer our pupils new and exciting experiences through extra-curricular activities that are designed to build resilience, confidence and self-esteem. Our curriculum will be delivered in accordance with the Equality Act 2010, through a variety of methods, including those outlined below.

Topics are enriched with further opportunities to deepen understanding and give wider world experience.
