Curriculum Overview

Our carefully considered, balanced curriculum helps to develop the skills and attitudes necessary for life as a responsible citizen in the 2lst Century. Our curriculum provides opportunities for all pupils to learn and to achieve, irrespective of social background, culture, race, gender, differences in ability and needs. Pupils are encouraged to think creatively and critically and to respect others and the environments in which they live. We place an emphasis on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development across our curriculum and support children in developing principles for distinguishing between right and wrong.

Curriculum Statement

At Hacton Primary, we believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool that provides an education that is exciting, worthwhile and prepares our children for life beyond school, laying the foundations for lifelong learning. The curriculum is all the planned activities which we organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum but also the curriculum experiences which we as a school provide to develop the independence and responsibility of all of our pupils. We ensure that all children have a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. We aim to teach our pupils how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills so that they achieve their full potential.
