At Pinfold Primary School we have carefully developed a cumulative curriculum specific to the unique needs of our children and our community. We use Lancashire County Council planning resources which comprehensively cover the National Curriculum requirements. Our school has a unique make up and so our curriculum is bespoke. We have two mixed age classes. Both of our classes cover two curriculums. Our staff are very skillful. They know the curriculum well and ensure they plan for challenge and progression. Our curriculum overviews show where skills, knowledge have been covered each year. We have designed a four year rolling programme. Our termly topics are whole school topics and we plan visits and trips at the beginning of each half term to inspire our children and staff and to ensure all children start their learning on an even footing.
We have a Forest School ethos and plan for a lot of our learning to take place in the woods and out of doors.
Our Curriculum Intent
We believe children have an unlimited capacity for learning and personal success: our challenging and inspiring curriculum will create independent, critical thinkers, confident, responsible and caring, high reaching learners who have the skills and knowledge to be able to keep themselves and others safe and happy, challenge discrimination and to make our world a better place.
Please see our Curriculum Overviews page for more in-depth detail.
Our approach to the curriulum complies with duties set out in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. We ensure our curriculum is accessible to all. Where necessary and appropriate we may personalise the curriculum to children's specific needs.
