Preshute Primary School


Our Curriculum

At Preshute we embody our mission statement ‘Live life, Love learning’. Our vision is to deliver an exciting, creative and vibrant curriculum by asking ‘big questions’, which provide the stimulus for learning. We provide high quality learning opportunities for all, within a safe; secure and inspiring environment.

We believe that this will inspire a love of learning and unlock the potential that lies without all of our children, preparing them to be happy, successful and responsible citizens in the future.

The school follows the content of the National Curriculum programmes of study. We have mapped the content areas for each year group. Click here to see our whole school overview.

To engage learnings, learning is based around over-arching themes. These are published in the form of a ‘big question’.

Children then explore/investigate/research aspects of the relevant skills/knowledge, guided by the teachers, then independently recording their answers to the question.

Each theme/big question is launched with an experiential activity that will inspire and hook-in learners. At the end of the term the learning will be celebrated with a ‘landing’ activity to answer the question and support independent learning. Where possible, learning will be celebrated and shared with parents, the rest of the school or the local community.



Intent – It is our intention when teaching the English curriculum that our pupils acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and linguists. We strive to ensure that all our pupils receive a well-rounded learning experience when reading, writing, speaking and listening which will equip them with the fundamental tools to achieve. It is our intention to immerse pupils in the wonders of quality texts to instil a love for reading, a passion for discovery and a confidence to explore their imagination.

Intent – Confident, Capable, Curious

We aim to use fluency in number as a secure springboard from which we can explore numbers, investigate patterns, solve problems and find rules, in a wide and exciting range of contexts. Successful mathematicians are able to communicate their thinking to each other’s, so we focus on the use of a variety of representations to show our thinking and the use of accurate and appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
