Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Pineham Barns Primary School is built on the foundations of ‘Fun, Creativity & Achievement. Fun to create happy, confident learners, creativity to provide them with the very best learning opportunities and achievement to ensure that every child reaches their full potential and achieves the highest outcomes.

This curriculum begins in the Early Years, children are provided with creative and engaging ways to explore and investigate their learning, so that the foundations are laid for a lifelong love of learning from the outset. Through innovative learning experiences, children are encouraged to become inquisitive resilient learners who readily challenge themselves. Learning is enhanced throughout the Early years and Key Stage One through ‘Welly Work,’ where the staff and children utilise the rich woodland environment next to the school in all weathers to develop a range of skills.

The foundations laid through the curriculum in the Early Years and Key Stage One are built on further in Key Stage Two, as the curriculum adapts to meet the changing needs of its learners. In Key Stage Two, pupils have an opportunity to embed their core skills through a variety of exciting and innovative learning experiences involving enterprise and Science for example. Visits, visitors and trips ensure that the children’s learning is memorable and enables them to challenge themselves further. Regular experiences involving art, sport, theatre and technology further enrich the curriculum for the pupils.

Throughout their time at Pineham Barns, our pupils engage with the local communities and explore the rich diversity that Modern Britain offers. Our core values of respect & tolerance, aspiration, resilience, determination, co-operation and responsibility are central to everything we do and ensure that our pupils make a positive contribution to society.

Finally, working in partnership with families is an important aspect of life at Pineham Barns Primary and parents are regularly invited to school to participate in their child’s learning and celebrate their achievements. If you have any questions concerning your child’s learning or our curriculum, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher or Mrs Stewart.
