Foundation Curriculum

At the Abbey Hey Primary Academy, the curriculum is specifically tailored to meet the needs of all our children. We aim to offer our children the best educational experience possible in order to prepare them fully for the lives they are going to lead. All young people are individuals and our curriculum recognises that; we want our curriculum to be exciting, interesting, innovative and engaging so that children are curious, inspired and enjoy learning.

We believe that the curriculum we offer should fire children’s imaginations and be challenging yet enable all children to feel success, no matter what their ability or interests. It should promote in children a self- belief and confidence which will enable them to reach their full potential.

Our curriculum extends beyond the formal requirements of the National Curriculum as we recognise that this is only part of what children require. Of paramount importance within our curriculum are the values, skills and abilities we feel our children will require to take their place in the world; these will enable our children to be compassionate and driven leaders of our future. Our curriculum is designed to provide a rich and varied programme of activities and learning experiences to meet the needs, interests and aspirations of all learners, within and beyond the school day. It is underpinned by a clear whole school vision within our mission statement and set of curriculum drivers. These characteristics define our curriculum and support the work we do. Our drivers are areas that we value as a school; they give focus to learning opportunities and are embedded throughout teaching and learning and developing the child as a whole.
