Curriculum Statement - Introduction


The purpose of this part of the website is to meet the statutory requirements for publishing information about the school curriculum and to provide useful information to parents/carers, including:

  • Where to access the content of the school curriculum in each academic year for every subject
  • The names of any phonics or reading schemes we use (in Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2)
  • How parents or other members of the public can find out more about the curriculum our school is following


At the bottom of this page, you will find the full "Policy Curriculum Statement' document for the current academic year. This is a detailed document which should provide all subject/curriculum information required. Please just get in touch if you require any further information about the curriculum at Kilham CE Primary School.

Introduction – The Curriculum

The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also any other activity organised by school, for example, extra-curricular activities and any other activities designed to enrich the experience of the children.  There is also a ‘hidden’ element to the curriculum which includes what the children learn from their school environment, the way they are treated and how they are expected to behave.


There are two main reasons for having a curriculum policy statement:

  1. To outline our interpretation of the statutory expectations for the delivery of the National Curriculum – a new statutory curriculum was introduced and has been running in school as from September 2014. Therefore it is good practice to define what our curriculum as a school will be in the forthcoming year.
  2. The School Information Regulations 2012 specify a statutory requirement for schools to publish their curriculum alongside other important information. This document and web page contributes to fulfilling that statutory requirement.
