Our Curriculum at Cavendish

Our aim at Cavendish Primary School is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, successful learner with high aspirations. Careful analysis and discussion about our pupil's backgrounds, life experiences and culture has helped us to design a curriculum with four key priorities underpinning every subject area. We believe that by focusing on the following key priorities our children will be inspires and motivated to learn, be ready to successfully meet the challenges of next stage of their education and be well prepared for life in modern Britain.

Our Curriculum Priorities

1. Aspiration -  we aim to provide a wide range of experience which challenge children but also demonstrate the wide range of possibilities available for their future.

2. Initiative - we aim to offer experiences which help them to become independent and resourceful learners.

3. Engagement - we aim to provide rich and varied experiences both in and out of school.

4. Citizenship - we aim to help our pupils value their environment and peers and understand their responsibilities within our school and beyond.


Our curriculum is carefully planned and designed to ensure coverage and progression of the National Curriculum subjects, which are delivered in a way to offer pupils memorable experiences, in addition to diverse and rich opportunities from which children can learn and develop a range of transferable basic skills and essential ICT skills too. The range of experiences we offer support and champion our culture and ensures that our children benefit from a full range of academic, spiritual, moral, social and cultural activities.

At Cavendish Primary School we carefully design, plan and implement an engaging curriculum which provides breadth for every pupil. Our nurturing and supportive provision ensures pupils feel confident to succeed, while our key strategies and pupil experiences underpin our school ethos. Our curriculum has an ambition for high achievement of all pupils irrespective of background or starting point.
