Curriculum Information

At Frinton-on-Sea Primary School, we are committed to providing a curriculum which is broad, balanced and provides our children with opportunities to gain essential knowledge, skills and understanding. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners. We will aim high, striving for every child to achieve. Our curriculum will nurture curious minds, stretch the imagination and provide opportunities for every child to discover their particular talents. We believe that education should take place in a fully inclusive environment with equal opportunities for all where children feel safe to try new things.

Our curriculum aims to: 

 ▪ Provide a broad and balanced education for all children that is coherently planned and sequenced towards the cumulative acquisition of knowledge and skills for future learning and employment. 

▪ Enable children to develop knowledge, understand concepts, acquire skills and apply them to relevant, real-life situations. 

▪ Support children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. 

▪ Promote fundamental British values. 

▪ Support children’s physical development and promote responsibility for their own health to enable them to be active.

▪ Promote a positive attitude towards learning. 

▪ Ensure equal access to learning for all children, with high expectations for every pupil and appropriate levels of challenge and support. 

▪ For all children to make the best possible progress and to achieve the highest possible attainment. 

▪ Equip children with the knowledge and cultural capital (awareness of the world around us) they need to succeed in life. 

▪ Provide children with an inspiring and enquiry-based curriculum to promote creativity and a thirst for learning.

A broad and balanced curriculum is not just the timetabled subjects; it is every child's holistic experience of school. This encompasses the ‘hidden curriculum’, such as: extracurricular activities, trips, careers, how to behave, how to have tolerance of others and good mental health. 

 We also understand that having a wide vocabulary and good reading and maths skills are crucial for our children to be able to access all aspects of the curriculum. We believe that all children, regardless of their background, should have access to a wide, exciting and inspiring curriculum that prepares them for the society they live in and how to succeed in life and work.
