Our Curriculum

At Riddings Junior School, we believe that all children are entitiled to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that enables them to make progress, to develop their skills and interests and which prepares them for the next stage of their learning journey.

We aim to :

  • enable all children to make progress and to achieve
  • develop the basic skills that will support them throughout their life 
  • broaden their aspirations, experiences, knowledge, skills and understanding
  • promote British values (democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs)
  • equip children with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to make positive choices
  • help them become healthy and active adults

Focussing on our school motto of PRIDE allows us to personalise the national curriculum (click here) so that it meets the needs of all of our children and allows them to:

Progress                 through



Determination           and



Because we recognise the importance of English (Literacy) and Maths (Numeracy) as the basis for all learning, they are taught daily in dedicated sessions. Where appropriate, links are made to the termly topic which provides us with an overarching theme for each each year group, each term. These are usually led by Science, Geography, History or PSHE with other subjects feeding into, supporting or extending the topic; however, we do not force links where they don't exist so sometimes subjects wil be taught distinctly and separately.
