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 have recently completed a review of our curriculum and our topics have changed effective January 2020. We enhance our curriculum through the use of specialist teachers. We buy specialist services for our music curriculum. We use specialist coaches to team teach our PE throughout school from Reception to Year 6. 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.
