A Rich and Engaging Curriculum

At Hornbeam Primary School we offer children a rich and engaging curriculum that is designed to develop the skills and personal attributes they will need to succeed in their future lives.

Using our mission statement "Learn About Life to Live Your Life Better" as inspiration, teachers design topics around the National Curriculum Programmes of Study that aim to develop children's life skills and give them experiences that they will remember into adulthood.

We use our seven Learning Words so children understand how our topics help them to develop these key learning skills as they move through the school:

  • Curiosity

  • Ambition

  • Resilience

  • Adaptability

  • Reflection

  • Pride

  • Courage

Parents are informed via termly class newsletters of topics and curriculum coverage. If you have any questions regarding curriculum, please contact the school.
