Curriculum Whole School Overview and Policy

Our Chestnut Park Primary School Curriculum - Year 1 Upwards

At Chestnut Park Primary School, we use a thematic approach to learning based on the children's interests. We combine International Primary Curriculum Units together to ensure a full coverage of a broad and balanced Curriculum. It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear process of learning and with specific learning goals for every subject, for personal learning and for international mindedness. As we combine units to the children’ interests and needs, we ensure full and deep coverage of the National Curriculum. National Curriculum Coverage is detailed within the attached downloads.
