Dream and Believe, Learn and Achieve...



Our Curriculum

At Garrett Hall, the key aim for all our teaching and learning is to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn, to enjoy and to achieve. We encourage the best possible progress and the highest attainment for all our pupils. Our curriculum builds on pupils’ strengths, interests and experiences and develops children’s confidence in their capacity to learn, be reflective and work independently and collaboratively becoming responsible young citizens.

Garrett Hall's Curriculum Rationale


Legal Requirements

The core of our curriculum is based around the guidance issued by the Department of Education (DfE) in the following two documents:


The Early Years Framework (2014) - Nursery and Reception

Click Here


The National Curriculum (2014) – Year 1 to Year 6

Click Here


Whilst the above two documents are statutory we are free to supplement this with any other knowledge and skills that we feel are relevant to our pupils. 

Our curriculum is taught through term long ‘Themes’ that are used to tie together the different subject areas, where possible. This approach has many advantages including giving a focus of interest for the children and making it easier for parents to be involved in their children’s learning. All themes include educational visits or visitors to school and often also a special event such as Year 1’s Superhero Day.


The National Curriculum core subjects (English, Maths and Science) are also taught discretely to ensure mastery and depth of understanding.
