What does your child learn at school each day?

Find information about our curriculum here.


At Pendle Primary school we follow a two year programme of exciting 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. Topics are carefully planned to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum requirements. Details of this year’s topics can be found in the long term topic plans below.


We teach the maths curriculum through discrete maths lessons and link to topics when relevant.


In Reception (Foundation Stage) and KS1 we follow the phases in 'Letters & Sounds' to teach Phonics and the 'Oxford Reading Tree' scheme (in the main) to teach reading.


In order to actively promote the teaching of E-Safety from the Foundation Stage to Year 6, each year group will be taught a designated half term of E-Safety per year. In support of this, E-Safety will be embedded across the curriculum in other subjects.


Details of the National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 can be found at:


Children in Reception work towards Early Learning Goals through structured practical activities that build on their fascinations.

Details of the Foundation Stage Profile can be found at:


Further information about the curriculum your child is following can be found in the News and Events - letters section where there is a half termly topic letter for each class. Classes in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One also have owl board notices to tell you what they are learning in different subjects each week ( News and Events- Owl Board notices).


If you would like more information about what your child is learning in school please arrange to speak to their class teacher.
