At Preston Primary School we feel strongly that the curriculum needs to foster creativity and to be driven by what the pupils in our school need. We operate single age year groups, that teach National Curriculum 2014 objectives, where appropriate, through a topic. Some subjects, such as French are taught discretely. We enhance our curriculum through the use of specialist teachers. For the academic Year 2016-2017 we buy services through Egglescliffe Secondary School to deliver our music curriculum. We use Middlesbrough Football Club to deliver one hour of PE coaching per week throughout school from Year One. In addition we also have a specialist French teacher who teaches French from Year One to Year Six for forty five minutes per week. Throughout the year we send home curriculum newsletters, which are available below. Our school curriculum complemented by our Preston curriculum reflects our school values of a family environment, built on partnership working that uses a child centered approach to develop responsible lifelong learners that are prepared for life in modern Britain with the skills to play an active part in their communities. If you would like to find out more about the school curriculum please make an appointment to see the Headteacher or your child’s class teacher.
