At Ferndale Primary School, we have designed a curriculum which is underpinned by our key drivers: aspiration, inspiration and inclusion, as well as our values and Learning 9.  These all contribute to the direction and development of all areas of our school life, and ultimately to the ‘whole’ development of our pupils’ – knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes.

We view the design of the curriculum as an evolving and sequential process, which has clear progression in subject skills and knowledge and is flexible and responsive to the individual needs and interests of all our pupils.  This takes into consideration: the needs and character of all our pupils including those with SEND, the more able, those with EAL and the disadvantaged; the children’s prior learning; children’s experiences; the community and the statutory curriculum (National Curriculum.)

We have designed a curriculum, which teaches what matters to our children, so that they know more, remember more and understand more. A curriculum filled with rich first-hand experiences.

Below are the subjects that we teach and our long-term plans:
