National Curriculum 2014

‘The National Curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.’
At Mosscroft Primary school we aim to meet the requirements of The National Curriculum 2014 through a range of engaging, fun and creative approaches . In order to deliver much of its content, we are committed to providing a quality international curriculum that not only enables children to develop the key academic knowledge, skills and understanding required but also enables them to achieve an understanding of their own heritage and culture; to this effect the school uses the materials produced by ‘The International Primary Curriculum’ as a foundation on which to build a global curriculum.

Alongside our IPC themes we teach English and maths  key skills on a daily basis, both discretely or as part of a cross curricular approach.  The  science curriculum is also delivered as a discrete unit . In addition, and to add enhancements, we also build into the school year themed weeks, focus days, visits out of school and visitors into school.


Developing our pupils as rounded individuals also means that to complement our school ethos and our  Restorative Practice approaches and Behaviour for Learning policy,  that a great importance is also placed on the delivery of SMSC (social, moral, social and cultural) education through all our teaching and learning.


Take a look at some of our gallery photos and Learning in action parts of our class pages, which should provide you with a flavour of our rich curriculum.
