At Swinnow Primary, we strive for a curriculum that nurtures fascination, imagination and creativity. Our curriculum is built around our children’s interests, and exciting hands-on experiences. By giving our children a voice, we enable them to contribute to their curriculum whilst promoting involvement, ownership and independence. Through our curriculum we aim to equip our children with the necessary skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners for now and in readiness for the next stage of their education.
We aim to provide a curriculum that is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated to provide for the varied abilities, ensuring the statutory requirement of the 2014 National Curriculum are met, and the key priorities at the heart of our school are embedded.
This National Curriculum comprises of: English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education (PE), Computing, KS2 Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) and Religious Education. The teaching of Religious Education is statutory in all schools, and it is taught following the Leeds Agreed Syllabus. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our children and their understanding of the core values of our society are woven through our curriculum.
