At Byfleet Primary School we provide a broad and balanced curriculum so that our children have the opportunity to emerge as engaged and informed citizens and learners, ready for the next challenge.
The curriculum is based on the New National Curriculum which ensures continuity and detail. Aspects of the curriculum are taught in formal lessons but also in activities and through exploring the values and ethos of the school. The personal, social, health and emotional development of our children is at its heart.
Our teaching staff have high expectations of the children and deliver interesting and exciting lessons to develop their understanding. Those that need specialist help will be supported by a team of teachers and teaching assistants who are advised by our Special Needs Co-ordinator. Those that have specific skills or talents are given the opportunity to develop these.
Enshrined in our curriculum is the sense of British values and these are exemplified through our new Values curriculum. Children learn about responsibility, respect, care and trust and we hope to inspire pupils to become positive role models for each other, and to grow up to make a positive contribution to a fair and just world.
Our Values so far this year have included Patience, Co-operation, Responsibility and Understanding.
The Curriculum is made up of teaching in the following subjects:
- Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Care
- Foreign Languages (French)
- Art and Design
- Design Technology
A creative curriculum allows integration of subjects across topics so that the learning is embedded through immersion in the history or geography focus. Our curriculum is ever-changing and adapting not only to the needs of the children but also to the modern world in which we live. Children at Byfleet Primary School have a sense of pride in their school, and through effective curriculum delivery they have knowledge and appreciation of the world around them.
