Our HeadStart Primary curriculum will guide your children through Key Stage 1 (Years 1-2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6).

Taking its inspiration from the English National Curriculum, the HeadStart Curriculum provides our Primary pupils with a world class framework to develop their skills in English, Mathematics, and Science, as well as Computing, History, Geography, Personal Development and International Awareness Studies (PDIAS), Physical Education (including swimming), Music, Art and Languages. We call it the HeadStart Curriculum because we make adaptations to the English National Curriculum in order to make our curriculum more engaging, and relevant, for our culturally diverse HeadStart pupils. Our Primary curriculum ensures our pupils are extremely well prepared for continued success in our Secondary school and beyond.

Please do take the time to look through the additional content contained in the Primary sections of our school website.

You can find more detailed information regarding our HeadStart Curriculum in our curriculum booklets which can be found below.

The 2022 Education Development Trust (EDT) Accreditation Report judged ‘the curriculum to be good overall with some outstanding aspects.’

‘The well-considered curriculum is closely aligned to the requirements of the national curriculum for England in the primary classes. Leaders make sure that the curriculum is broad, rich and deep and are always finding ways of improving the curriculum still further. Standards reached by the end of primary are above the English national curriculum expectations. The curriculum has many strengths, not least the way in which it enhances students’ personal development and sense of self-worth. A wide range of activities that includes sports, performing arts, creative and technology-related opportunities, enriches the curriculum and extends students’ experiences and enjoyment of school life.’ Education Development Trust (EDT) Accreditation Report, June 2021.
