Please find below information about the way our curriculum is taught. Parents or other members of the public can find out more about our curriculum by contacting the school.
From September 2014 the new National Curriculum will be taught at Easington Church of England Primary School as in all maintained schools.
Links are made where possible to the children’s learning in English and Mathematics in order to provide them with meaningful contexts and purposeful opportunities to learn and apply their skills.
Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which helps children to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes which fully prepare them for the next stage of their education and later life in modern Britain. Through our curriculum, Collective Worship themes and circle time activities, children learn about British values such as freedom, tolerance and respect for the rule of the law. We strongly believe that the focus on this in our curriculum helps to develop responsible, thoughtful pupils who have the capacity to make positive contributions to life in Britain now and in the future.
At Easington Church of England Primary School we also value the importance of supporting children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development and ensure that this is a focus in all we do including within our curriculum.
Due to the introduction of the new National Curriculum, we have begun to use the Medium Term Plans produced by Durham LA as a supportive tool. At present we have planned the autumn term topics in what will be a two year rolling programme. Curriculum overviews can be found in the Our Classes section of our website.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At our school we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
