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 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.
The subject and topics we teach enable children to learn and develop new skills. Central to our school curriculum is the development of reading, writing and mathematics. Reading, writing and mathematics are essential to understand the world around us.
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.
Helping a child to understand how to stay safe in modern society is essential. We teach children about road, fire and water safety. Keeping safe on the internet is a vital skill. Understanding how to interpret and read information on Google is a key skills all children need to know. Our computing lessons enable pupils to comprehend how to spot dangers and the range of media they will experience.
The Curriculum is made up of teaching in the following subjects:
- Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Care
- Foreign Languages (French)

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 deliver they have knowledge and appreciation of the world around them.
Byfleet Primary School offers a range of enrichment activities both in and out of school to support the curriculum. We use Now Press Play to supplement our trips and to enrich our curriculum. These experiences enable our children to challenge themselves and discover talents they never knew they had.
