Our Curriculum

Somerford Primary School Curriculum

We are proud of the broad and rich curriculum which we offer to the children at Somerford Primary School.

Our curriculum covers all aspects of the National Curriculum but we are also in the process of developing a curriculum specifically tailored to meet the needs of the children who attend Somerford Primary School.

Our curriculum statement explains some of the choices which we have made in the what we choose to teach and why as well as how we choose to deliver this curriculum.

We make careful choices about how we further enrich our curriculum by the additonal experiences and opportunities which we offer the children. To explore our curriculum further please use the links on the left hand side of this page.

We strive to work in partnership with or parents and are keen to share our curriculum with them so that they can assist us in the delivery of the curriculum.  Each year group produces knowledge organisers for each topic they deliver.  We also have regular curriculum events, such as our afternoon at the museum history event, our books at bedtime reading event or our reading and maths mornings at which we share our curriculum.
