All children are entitled to a broad, balanced, and ambitious curriculum. At Clifton-upon-Teme Primary School our curriculum aims to 'Inspire Minds and Shape Futures'.
Our school values, The Clifton Way, underpin all of our teaching and learning and are evident in all the relationships within our school community.
We aim to ensure that our children have the opportunity to begin to develop towards being competent and confident artists, geographers, historians, designers, musicians, sportsmen and sportswomen, mathematicians, readers and authors.
Much of our curriculum is planned around a specific text or theme; often foundation subjects (such as History and Geography) act as the key driver to develop the thematic approach. These cross-curricular links are meaningful and purposeful so that our children develop transferable skills and providing opportunities to become creative and critical thinkers. There are many instances where certain aspects of a subject, or subjects as a whole, do not fall under a theme and these elements are taught discretely. Our curriculum is clearly sequenced, ensuring children learn subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding.
