Bethany School Curriculum

Curriculum Intent 




Our aim is to enable each child to succeed in school and life and develop a lifelong passion for learning.


We are ambitious for all our children and adapt our high challenge curriculum where appropriate to meet individual needs. Through promotion of our core Christian values of compassion, creativity, confidence and curiosity, we encourage our children to develop strong morals, high aspirations and resilience to cope with life’s challenges.


Curriculum Design

Our curriculum is designed to excite, motivate and engage all children. It has been carefully structured to incorporate the requirements of the national curriculum, whilst reflecting the interests and experiences of our school community.

Our curriculum has been sequenced to take account of our belief that knowledge underpins and enables the application of skills. We ensure that our children learn skills alongside knowledge and both are explicitly developed.


Our curriculum emphasises the core skills of English and Maths as well as the following specific skills:

  • Communication
  • Enquiry
  • Independence
  • Collaboration


Curriculum content is grouped into termly projects. Reading skills and carefully selected texts are at the heart of each project. Global issues are integrated into each project and aspects of spirituality are explored. Project content is driven by a subject specific focus and includes identified opportunities for children to apply taught knowledge and skills, including significant writing opportunities. Projects offer children opportunities to develop links with our local community.

If you wish to learn more about our curriculum, please contact the school or speak to your child's teacher. We will be happy to help.
