Curriculum

Year 5 Pupil'Bourne Abbey provides an outstanding education for its pupils.' Ofsted 2010

We have high expectations of all our pupils.  We support children both academically and socially, to achieve their full potential as lifelong learners and to take full advantage of life's opportunities.

It is the elements of Excellence and Enjoyment that define our school.  We are proactive in ensuring that the learning is exciting and interactive, children's preferred learning styles are identified, their learning is well supported and achievement and confidence are high.

As a Church School and through our engagement with UNICEF, we not only encourage our pupils to strive for excellence in the core subjects, but to broaden their education, to embrace and develop the concepts of faith and spirituality, of hope and charity and to enable them to understand the elements that underpin British values and make more informed decisions in life as broad-minded and knowledgeable world citizens.

During the academic year the school will hold information and workshop sessions both during the day and in the evenings in order to try to reach as many parents and carers as possible.  These sessions will be very informative and an excellent opportunity for home and school to work together in support of learning opportunities. We will keep you informed of dates and times.

 The National Curriculum in England changed in 2014 and we have been following a timetable of changes between the National Curriculum (2000) and the National Curriculum (2014), as set out by the Department of Education.

We are very excited and positive about the changes. We worked hard as a team to ensure that the stages of transition to the new curriculum were well thought out and matched the needs of our pupils in order to continue to provide them with outstanding educational experiences during their important primary school years.
