Grindleton C.E. Primary School

Grow and Shine in God’s Glory

Curriculum Overview


At Grindleton Church of England Primary School we offer a curriculum that is rich and exciting.  The staff work hard to make learning relevant and fun – and our pupils thrive as a result.


We aim to provide a curriculum which will equip children with a love of learning and the skills required to become lifelong learners. We strive to provide them with the skills, knowledge and understanding required for life in the twenty-first century.


The learning opportunities provided for the children and the teaching styles that are used are constantly under review.


Recently, we have started to develop units of work that cross the boundaries of subject areas and focus on the development of skills, which can then be used and applied in all areas of life and learning. These all meet the requirements of the new National Curriculum (2014). and have been suggested by Lancashire County Council.


A sample of a unit of work for Year 2 and Year 6 that may be used and adapted can be found below.

We believe that learning should be exciting, stimulating, challenging and, above all, fun!


The following quotes from our latest Ofsted report (November 2016) support our view that our pupils genuinely love learning:


'The school has a broad and balanced curriculum. Work seen by the inspector showed the development of knowledge, skills and understanding in a range of subjects.' 


If you would like to find out more about the curriculum we follow in school then please contact the office to make an appointment with Mr Holden or Mrs Walmsley.


'Pupils benefit from a wide range of enrichment activities that are provided across the three partner schools, including sports, after-school clubs, visits and residential trips.'
