At Pye Bank Primary School, the curriculum supports and develops the pupils’ ambitions and aspirations and understanding of the community and the wider world in which they live. The curriculum is underpinned by enquiry based practice and is research led. Through our curriculum we aim to expose children to new experiences, including business and the world of work and research. Academic performance and the development of self (Spirituality, social, moral, physical and cultural development and mental wellbeing) are given equal importance with curriculum design. Our curriculum is designed with the key aim of supporting all children to reach their potential.

The art curriculum at Pye Bank develops creativity, sets problems to be tackled, engages pupils and equips them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art. The curriculum is designed with creativity in mind, and enables pupils to build on skills acquired as they progress through each year. Pupils are encouraged to explore and investigate, create and evaluate artwork as set out in the National Curriculum whilst studying a wide range of artists, architects and designers from throughout history...
