Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Gamesley School is rich, challenging and relevant. We ensure that children are taught the basic and crucial skills of reading, writing, maths and computing thoroughly and in depth using highly structured schemes which are designed to meet the needs of all children including the most able. We also teach subjects thematically through exciting topics giving children real life hands-on experiences. History, Geography, RE and Design Technology give children opportunities to think widely and deeply and to apply their research, comprehension, writing and mathematical skills. Art, music, dance and PE enable our children to express themselves through different media. Through our Enterprise activities, links with International Schools, specialist Spanish teaching, ECO activities and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural lessons we prepare our children to be successful citizens in modern Britain.

This year's curriculum plans are attached below and more details of our approaches to teaching the different areas of the curriculum can be found under the separate tabs in this section of the website.
