At Harden Primary School we follow the National Curriculum (2014) through a bespoke vehicle that drives our thematic approach to learning and teaching. It is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum that is mapped out to ensure progression in learning and is followed by children from Year 1 to Year 6. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage also follow a thematic curriculum based upon the statutory requirement of the EYFS.

The curriculum is mapped and planned with a clear learning outcome in mind. It has specific learning intentions for every subject, ensuring that children receive a broad and balanced curriculum which equips them for the next stage in their learning as well as life in modern Britain.

In September 2014 a new curriculum came into effect for years 1 -6. Please see below what will be taught in each year group.
