Our Learning

Our Curriculum 

At Seymour we provide our children with an education designed so that every child can thrive and achieve personally and academically. Our curriculum promotes our core values of curiosity, where children question and experiment with relentless curiosity to broaden their minds; where children have the courage to set themselves goals and challenge themselves; where children have the compassion to treat themselves and each other with respect, kindness and understanding.

Our curriculum is planned through enquiry based questions to trigger and activate children’s curiosity, encouraging them to make and take courageous decisions and actions, while promoting children’s compassion in ‘learning together and supporting each other’. This enquiry process prepares children for future education and the world of work by creating young people who are focused on problem solving and creative and 

Our subject specific concepts are threaded throughout our curriculum and are taught and revisited to ensure that children have a depth of understanding, allowing them to build on knowledge and skills they already hold, moving from novice to expert.


National Curriculum

The National Curriculum (NC) provides both the content and the framework for most of what we teach at Seymour Primary School.  In the Early Years, children experience the seven areas of learning as set out by the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which is delivered nationally.  In Key Stage One and Two, children are taught the ‘core’ subjects of English, mathematics, science and the ‘foundation’ subjects of art; computing; design and technology (DT); geography; history; modern foreign language (MFL-Spanish); music; religious education (RE) and personal, social, health, and economic education (PSHE).
