Our Curriculum

‘Learning together.  Growing together.’

We are very proud of our curriculum and have worked hard creating a broad and balanced two/three*-year rolling cycle for our children.

*Phase 3 has a three-year cycle due to three-year groups in one class.


The core intention of our curriculum is for children to develop a deep body of knowledge and skills through engaging and memorable learning experiences which encourage all children to ask ‘big’ questions and develop independence and resilience in their learning.


In primary schools within The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT), we teach the National Curriculum 2018 through 21 x 12 week learning enquiries over seven years; three per year for each year group.  At Pawlett Primary School Academy this is organised on a two-year rolling programme for Phases 1 & 2 (YR – Y3) and in Years 4, 5 and 6 we have a three-year cycle to ensure complete curriculum coverage. This ensures that we delve deeper and secure knowledge and understanding.


The impact of our curriculum will be measured by ascertaining how much children know and can do from one learning enquiry to the next.  We will evaluate what knowledge and understanding our children have gained against age related expectations.

‘Learning is defined as an alteration in long term memory. If nothing has been altered in long-term memory-nothing has been learned’
