Preston Curriculum


What is the Preston Curriculum?

Our Preston Curriculum centres around life skills. We know that in an ever evolving world we have to ensure that children have the skills that they need to adapt and learn in order to be able to play a part in the society of not only today, but tomorrow. The Preston Curriculum is ours, built by us, trialled by us and developed as it needs to. It centres around three questions.

1.      What traits do we want to see in our Preston children?

2.      Knowing their backgrounds what do we need to teach more of?

3.      What do we value in education that has been slimmed down or disappeared?

From this we developed our curriculum of


Creative thinking

Resilience and confidence


Critical thinking

It is important to understand that the progression documents are just starting points, as the teacher of that class knows that cohort the best and what they need as a group and as individuals. The long term progression framework gives the basic structure that the teacher then plans from, not all strands feature in all year groups.  Each year our overview is
