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 history curriculum at Pye Bank has a clear skills and knowledge progression which is planned and structured to ensure that current learning builds systematically on previous learning. By the end of Year 6, pupils will have a chronological understanding of British history from the Stone Age to the present day. They are able to make comparisons and identify connections between different time periods and their own lives. Interlinked with this are studies of world history, such as the ancient civilisations of Greece and the Egyptians.  At Pye Bank, pupils do not simply learn a series of facts about the past.  Our curriculum enables pupils to interpret and evaluate evidence and reach conclusions. To do this successfully, as historians, they need to be able to research, interpret evidence, including primary and secondary sources, and have the necessary skills to argue for their point of view; skill that will help them in their adult life....
