Arkholme Church of England Primary School


At Arkholme Church of England Primary School, our curriculum is rooted in our school vision. Through an engaging curriculum we seek to inspire
a love for learning,
curiosity and creativity,
imagination and independence,
each other as individuals,
collaboration within our community and
awe and wonder for God’s World.

Our curriculum is based on four key principles

  • Knowledge
  • Skills
  • Experiences
  • Holistic

The starting point for our curriculum is the Early Years Foundation Stage for the children in Reception (updated in March 2021) and the National Curriculum (2014) for children in Years 1 to 6.

The curriculum is arranged in a two year rolling programme. Subject leaders and class teachers carefully sequence the knowledge and skills that children will learn in each subject area.
