Curriculum

At Sir Henry Fermor CE Primary, we value a knowledge rich curriculum underpinned within a carefully planned and sequenced framework to enable cumulative knowledge and effective learning. The curriculum is rooted in a strong belief of equality for all pupils therefore the approach is successfully designed to be ambitious – ensuring that pupils with SEND and those who are disadvantaged apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and therefore gain confidence in learning and thereby transcend any barriers to successful learning.  No child is left behind. 

Our curriculum ensures excellent coverage of the National Curriculum (Years 1-6) and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We have fully embraced the higher expectations set out in both curricula and have devised our own units of work for each subject area, so that we can ensure a sound progression of learning. We also have a core team of specialist teachers who are passionate about their curriculum area. Our curriculum is broad and balanced and offers a wide range of curricular activities involving visits out of school and visitors to school, to enhance learning and extend pupils’ cultural capital.

In this section, you will find information about our school’s curriculum, including: 

  • the content of the curriculum we follow in each academic year and for for every subject
  • how parents or other members of the public can find out more about the curriculum we follow
