The Edward Betham C of E Primary School

Our Curriculum

At Edward Betham we have taken inspiration from our school vision and designed our curriculum to promote a curiosity about the world and develop a life-long love of learning. 

Faith: Our children develop faith in their own abilities and in an understanding of their place in the world. 

Hope: We teach them to have hope for the future and to know the power of education to help them become agents of change. 

Love: We nurture our children to understand that they are loved and that they can show God's love to others through the way that they live their lives.

Our ambitious, topic-based curriculum reflects our local context whilst making clear links to our global community and responsibilities. Our intention is that our curriculum will extend opportunity, raise aspiration and allow children to develop communication skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers.  At the heart of the curriculum is a desire for children to recognise and develop their own unique gifts and to live happy, healthy and productive lives. We take a mastery approach to all our learning at Edward Betham and ensure that we provide the necessary supports and scaffolds so that pupils of all abilities can access the full curriculum at our school.
