Curriculum Overview

We are enthusiastic about being curious, life-long learners at our school. We provide a broad, rich, relevant and meaningful curriculum which, as a team, we are very proud of. Children have a thirst for learning at Addingham and we are committed to nurturing young: writers, performers, readers, international speakers, mathematicians, scientists, historians, geographers, artists, designers, musicians, sports persons and computer users. Children are actively encouraged to follow their passions whilst becoming holistic learners, well-equipped to reach their full potential.

We place great importance on the school values which we promote at Addingham Primary School. They are paramount to each child’s journey towards personal, cognitive, social, emotional, cultural and physical development and fulfillment within our APS community.

KINDNESS: We have kind hearts at Addingham Primary School.                                                                                                                                                        HAPPINESS: Find happiness in the smallest of places…Addingham is a happy place to be. 

POSITIVITY: Being optimistic, feeling hopeful and having a confident outlook on life.
COURAGE: Have courage – channel that fire in your belly! Be brave!

RESILIENCE: The power of 'yet'– we all fail in life and make mistakes: resolve these, dust yourself off and start again! Mistakes are our friends.
HUMILITY / FORGIVENESS: Be humble and don’t be afraid to show humility. Occasionally we ‘drop a stitch’. We’re only human. We give apologies and accept apologies at Addingham, but most importantly we move on.

RESPECT: It’s mutual, it’s reciprocal. If we give it then we should receive it.
PATIENCE: In this digital world speed is of the essence, our children don’t really have to wait for very much; answers, shopping, conversations with friends are at the click of an ‘Enter’ button. This is why we have to work hard on demonstrating this.

If you'd like to find out further information about our curriculum, then please contact the school office to make an appointment with Miss Spinks. We work hard to ensure our curriculum meets the needs of all learners, including those with SEN needs or disabilities.
