Northleach C of E Primary School



We are proud of the broad and enriching curriculum that we offer at Northleach Primary School. The National Curriculum is central to our own curriculum, which ensures the age-related expectations are taught progressively throughout the school. 


At Northleach Primary School we deliver a Creative Curriculum, through meaningful topics which inspire curiosity and engage all of our learners. Our cross-curricular approach ensures activities link learning to real-life situations and often have a practical element. Our topics span a range of historical periods and geographical themes and we aim to ensure that all pupils are actively engaged in and enjoying their learning. Each term  a topic web is published to parents and carers, which outlines the programme of study that will take place. 


We believe that it is important that pupils actively engage with their learning, and use opportunities to 'bring learning to life' by enriching classroom based learning with trips as well as visits from individuals outside of the immediate school community. These are designed to extend learning, promote further learning and to provide context.  Children find these opportunities inspiring and memorable and the impact on their learning is evident in the work they produce in response to these experiences.  


The school complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 to ensure the curriculum is fully accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs.  Where appropriate we adapt the curriculum to best meet the needs of all our learners and fulfil our statutory duties.


Each Friday parents and carers are invited to join us for Celebration Worships, where the successes and achievements of our children are celebrated as a school community. In addition to this, once a year each class hosts an assembly where they share their learning. 


Phonics and reading: We follow the published scheme of Rocket Phonics in Reception and KS1 to support the teaching of phonics. Alongside this, children in Reception, KS1 and KS2 use materials from The Oxford Reading Tree help further develop their reading skills. 


We are continually reviewing and improving the curriculum we offer to our children,  evolving it  according to the needs of our children and to the aspirations of the staff and community.
