Curriculum Statement

Our curriculum is underpinned by the new National Curriculum which all mainstream primary schools are expected to deliver.

We recognise the importance of the development of basic skills necessary to be confident, independent learners and successful adults. We therefore place great emphasis on teaching Mathematics, Reading, Writing and providing opportunities for Speaking and Listening.

We aim to make learning interesting by providing relevant and memorable teaching experiences often by using a cross-curricular approach and by taking learning outside the classroom. Through the curriculum we aim to enhance the childrens’ knowledge of the world, to develop an appreciation and understanding of the diversity of people in our world and to open their eyes to the possibilities for their future.

The curriculum at Keighley St Andrew’s aims to enable children to:

  • Develop a love of learning
  • Take learning beyond the classroom
  • Build confidence and motivation
  • Communicate and interact effectively with others
  • Learn to value others, their views, cultures and beliefs
  • Use their acquired skills and knowledge to question and think
