Curriculum Intention

Pupils will:

be inspired by the teaching at our school

be engaged and experience learning as enjoyable and fulfilling

develop an enquiring mind, a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge

develop the ability, attitude and organisational skills to work both independently and in collaboration with others

master the key skills and achieve a level of competency sufficient to prepare them for the future challenges they will face

experience success and enjoy opportunities to celebrate their achievements


At Nether Alderley Primary School, the curriuclum is separated into three key areas:

  • Early Years Foundation Stage [Reception]
  • Key Stage 1 [Year 1 & 2]
  • Key Stage 2 [Year 3, 4, 5 & 6]

As classes are organised in mixed-age groups, the school arranges its curriuclum on a two-year rolling programme. The programme has been designed to promote cross-curricular links across areas of the National Curriculum, in order to enable pupils to apply knowledge, understanding and skills across a range of different subjects. This has proven to be a successful and enjoyable way of learning for our pupils. 

The programme of study is set around a theme or topic. In order to view the topics delivered, click the links below to access our long-term curriculum maps:
