Our Curriculum

We have designed our curriculum around a desire for children to leave Cleves with the knowledge, values and skills to equip them for secondary school and beyond. Our curriculum offer has the National Curriculum 2014 at its core, while personalising content for our children and our locality. Over the past year, we have developed our History, Geography and Science provision further to ensure progression of knowledge and skills through the school and to facilitate children making connections in their learning, both between and across subjects. During this academic year, our focus will move to other foundation subjects.

Curriculum Overviews

Learning at Cleves is organised under broad topic headings while maintaining the integrity of individual subjects. Termly topics are often built around a History or Geography focus; literacy, art and DT can be related to the broader topic whereas other subjects such as Maths, Computing, Science, RE, PSHE, PE and Games, French and Music are largely taught discretely.

Please visit the pages on the left hand side of these pages for more information on each of our subjects.
