Ellwood Curriculum

At Ellwood Primary School we believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool that promotes a love of learning and a willingness to explore. We believe that every child is entitled to a broad, balanced education that is right for them and aim to provide a full and rich variety of experiences for the pupils.


The curriculum includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum but also the range of extra-curricular activities that we organise, in order to enrich the experience of the children and to promote their learning and personal growth and development. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential.


We are continually reviewing and improving our curriculum to ensure that it meets our children’s needs.

You can find out more information about the school's curriculum by attending "Meet the Teacher" meetings in the Autumn Term and by looking at your child/ren's termly topic webs.
