At the Nawton and Rosedale Abbey CP Schools we provide a broad and balanced topic lead curriculum with relevant and meaningful links between subjects.

Our curriculum aims to:

  • Provide a broad and balanced education for all our children within a safe, happy, stimulating learning environment.
  • Enable all our children to achieve their full potential and we will celebrate their success.
  • Develop the whole child- academically, physically, socially, morally, and to prepare them for future challenges in our ever- changing world.
  • Recognise the value of each child as an individual, and the importance of nurturing every aspect of their personalities.
  • Encourage each child to develop their own reasoned set of attitudes, beliefs and values as well as fostering their tolerance, kindness and respect for others.
  • Nurture children’s self-esteem and confidence to encourage them to take responsibility and pride for all their achievements.
  • Promote independent attitudes towards learning.
  • Maintain effective partnerships between teachers, governors, parents and the community.

Curriculum Intent:

Our intention is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more.

Our intention is that all Rosedale Abbey children have SPIRIT:

Strong sense of community

Pride in all that they do,


Resilience and perseverance when facing challenges,

Inquisitive thinking,

Tolerance, kindness and respect to all others.

The National Curriculum:

Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that each school plans for its pupils. The national curriculum forms one part of the school curriculum.

All state schools are also required to make provision for a daily act of collective worship and must teach religious education to pupils at every key stage.

Maintained schools in England are legally required to follow the statutory national curriculum which sets out in programmes of study, on the basis of key stages, subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all pupils. All schools must publish their school curriculum by subject and academic year online.

All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. Schools are also free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of education.
