At Cranbrook Primary School we provide our children with a rich, balanced and meaningful curriculum. We follow a creative curriculum approach and where possible try to link topics across all subjects. In addition, teaching is enhanced by trips, visitors to school and launch/ end of topic days to promote life-long learners. The curriculum overviews which are shared during parent workshops highlights links across the curriculum including connections with British Values.


Our curriculum jigsaws provide an overview of the content of the National curriculum for each term.  The National Curriculum in England sets out the knowledge and skills to be taught in all state funded schools. It states that all state schools must offer a curriculum which is balanced promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school/society and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. 


The principles underpinning our curriculum include:

  • Developing curiosity within our pupils so that they become independent learners with a real passion for learning

  • Encourage pupils to be respectful of the diverse cultures

  • Preparing pupils with the skills for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in life in Modern Britain

  • Support our pupils in becoming ‘aspirational’ and reaching their full potential

  • Develop an awareness, appreciation and commitment to the local area
