Our curriculum

Our carefully designed creative curriculum provides the pupils with high quality learning experiences that prepare them both academically and socially to have successful futures.

Our school curriculum drivers: Responsibility, Aspirations, Independence, Communication and Curiosity run throughout the entire curriculum and are at the heart of all learning experiences in and outside of the classroom. The Learning Challenge Curriculum at Fieldhead is a question based approach to structuring and delivering the new National Curriculum.  Children use questions to explore science, history and geography themes e.g. ‘What makes the Earth so angry? (Year 3 geography), ‘Are you a super scientist?’ (Year 6 science).  Our themes are inspired by high-quality key texts that form the basis of our English teaching and learning.

Maths, Science, RE, PE, and French are all taught as discrete subjects although links to other themes and subjects are made where appropriate.

Together with our expectation that teaching strives to always be excellent, our enquiry led curriculum and skilled staff are ensuring that our children become engaged and resilient learners.

Curriculum Enrichment

Our pupils enjoy and benefit from primary educational experts such as sports coaches, musicians, poets and theatre groups visiting our school and working with the children. In addition, we have a teacher responsible for outdoor learning, who provides practical opportunities for children to apply their problem-solving skills outside of the classroom.

We also ensure that the children experience valuable educational visits linked to the curriculum. In Key Stage 2 the children have the opportunity to go on a residential visit to Kingswood Activity Centre.
