What does your child learn at school each day?
Find information about our curriculum here.
Our curriculum includes all that we offer to our pupils, including studying national curriculum subjects, extra-curricular activities and the hidden curriculum that underpins everything we do.
Our curriculum is designed and planned to help prepare children for their lives ahead, including future employment in an ever changing world. We want pupils at Pendle to enjoy learning, acquire skills and knowledge and be inspired to find out more. Where relevant, links are made to the local area and to current events so that children see the relevance in what they are learning and develop an empathy for and understanding of others. Lessons also focus on the world beyond Clitheroe to help our children understand and appreciate the wider world beyond their local area.
Personal development is encouraged through all areas of the curriculum and daily interactions with all members of the school community. In addition, extra curricular activities such as sports clubs, art, coding, theatre visits, music lessons and motivational speakers help to create well rounded individuals.
Underlying all of this are our school and British values; personal qualities that will help children to become the best that they can be in a diverse society.
At Pendle Primary school we follow a two year programme of cross-curricular topics, designed to motivate and inspire pupils. Where relevant, subjects are taught using a cross curricular approach so that children can make links in their learning. Rather than making tenuous links, subjects that do not link to the main theme are delivered as discrete lessons. Topics are carefully planned to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum requirements and progression of skills. There is a half termly topic letter available for each class (See - News and Events- Letters.) Classes in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One also write owl board notices to tell you about the main focus in different subjects each week (See - News and Events- Owl Board notices).
Information about how our curriculum complies with duties in the Equality Act 2010 and the SEN and Disability Regulations 2014 can be found in Key information-SEND- Pendle Accessibility Plan / Pendle SEN Policy.
