Curriculum Statement


Through our broad and ambitious curriculum at Renhold VC Primary, to ensure that all pupils flourish and achieve, we provide a rich and varied range of highly engaging and memorable learning opportunities that develop a love of learning across all curriculum areas.  First and foremost, our curriculum is child-centred so that learning is relevant to all our pupils. Our curriculum represents the whole of our learning community and provides a wide range of opportunities for our pupils to be able to relate to their learning experiences and apply them in the wider world.

We make creative links between and across subjects to promote the development of thinking skills and positive learning behaviours,enabling our children to be resilient, independent and motivated learners. Much of the children’s learning centres around cross-curricular topics or themes. Lessons and activities are designed to motivate, challenge and engage children willingly and actively in their learning, to view mistakes as helpful learning experiences and to not set limits on themselves.

We follow the guidelines set out in the National Curriculum and the Early Years foundation stage statutory framework. We use the Read Write Inc Scheme for teaching phonics and spelling. For mathematics we use White Rose Maths.

This is supplemented with clearly mapped out bespoke curriculum plans used in conjunction with the commercial Cornerstones Curriculum. 

The Cornerstones Curriculum helps children to:

  • learn about a range of interesting topics in creative ways
  • develop skills, deep knowledge and understanding in a range of subjects
  • make meaningful cross-curricular links
  • identify their interests and develop their passions
  • find out about themselves, the wider world and their place in it
  • develop their confidence, resilience, happiness and well-being.


As a school that maintains high expectations we make use of a range of information to monitor children's progress closely to ensure children make good progress and to adapt future teaching and learning to their needs.
