Friezland Primary School
At Friezland Primary School we are committed to the development of the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum which helps children to reach their full potential regardless of gender, disability, social class or special educational needs, in all areas of school life. We strive to ensure pupils are both numerate and literate by the end of Key Stage 2, preparing them as well as possible for moving on to secondary school.
Teaching staff are resolute on the importance of a curriculum which teaches children the aspects of social, moral, cultural and spiritual development and understanding which ensures they become good citizens in a multicultural Britain. We aim to give children a sense of self and an understanding and tolerance of others. Our topics and approaches help children to develop a sense of curiosity about the world and to take responsibility for their learning and achievements. We aim to provide children with real hooks for learning through enrichment activities such as visits, visitors and first hand experiences as we believe children learn by doing.
Our curriculum is taught on a two year cycle to cater for mixed age group classes. Teachers ensure children are taught according to their ability rather than age using a variety of teaching styles and personalised learning approaches.
Class teachers provide a termly newsletter for families which gives more in depth information than the long term plans attached.
Our curriculum adheres to the statutory National Curriculum in England (2013) which can be found by visiting the following link:
