Our curriculum has evolved over time.  It is organic and flexible as we change its content according to our class organisation and what is happeneing in the wider world.  Ensuring that our curriculum is rich with learning opportunities and is matched to suit the children’s needs, is a priority for us


The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

Darley and Summerbridge Curriculum

Curriculum 2021-23

Our intention is that our curriculum is broad, balanced, rich and full of stimulating learning activities that prepare our children for the next steps in their education.

Following significant disruption to learning due to the Corona Virus pandemic we have re-visited our curriculum and have focused on recovering opportunities for lost learning and equipping our children with the skills and knowledge they need for the future.  Much of the curriculum was re-designed so that it can now be accessed remotely and class arrangements were reconfigured so that children could access content that they would have otherwise missed.

Follow the links below for detailed information about each of the foundation subjects as well as our statement of intent, two year overview and how we assess the progress our children make.

In addition to our proposed curriculum we also have a brief overview of what our children will learn whether they are at home or at school.
