Our Curriculum is based around the 2014 National Curriculum for KS1 and KS2 and the Early Years framework for EYFS.

It is designed to provide our learners with a range of different learning experiences that meet the needs and interests of all pupils. We plan and organise activities to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes, not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities, visits and visitors that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. 

Every year group at Astwood Bank Primary has six key themes that make up the year. This means that year groups spend every half term learning something new. We think this keeps children’s learning alive and it allows us to deliver a broader education for our pupils. Each theme is driven by well chosen literature, including opportunities to read quality non-fiction texts.
