The Curriculum at Darley Churchtown

We have selected an exciting and stimulating set of topics, to cover science, history and geography in the National Curriculum, providing cross-curricular opportunities to branch into other areas. In all our lessons, we encourage children to develop as independent and active learners and we nurture enquiring minds.


English, Maths, RE, PSHE, Computing, and Music are all taught separately, although links are made with our topics wherever appropriate.  Enterprise is a further strand of our curriculum, which develops life skills in preparation for the future.


We recognise our responsiblity to prepare children for the complexities of life in modern Britain, and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development unpderpins all of our learning.


Classes follow a two-yearly cycle to allow for mixed year group planning.  At the beginning of each half term, class teachers prepare a curriculum newsletter to share with parents, which includes information about children's learning in more detail.


Wherever possible we arrange enrichment visits, trips and activities that connect to the children's current topics and provide valuable links with their learning.  These activities are generously subsidised by PTA (Parents and teachers association) funding, so that costs for families are kept as low as possible, whilst enabling these visits to go ahead.  If you would like to know more about how you can help the PTA with funding, please visit their page on this website.
