This section of our website is focused on our Curriculum and provides an overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 to 6. There are also sections on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development and British Values.
We aim to identify and remove barriers to learning and provide suitable learning challenges that respond to diverse needs, including those of the most able. This encompasses a variety of exciting, first-hand experiences to enable children to acquire appropriate skills, knowledge and understanding preparing them for today’s world.

We want to create a curriculum that gives children a sense of pride about living in Bearpark. (heritage)
We will give children a wide range of opportunities- anyone can do anything! (cultural capital)
We will show children the world beyond Bearpark.
We will enable children to know more, and remember more.
We will help children to become better learners. (problem solvers and readers)
Children have also designed a part of our curriculum. These are our Class Passports. They are displayed in the entrance to every class and for 2022 includes:
- A theatre visit
- Fly a kite
- Go bird watching
- Learn a poem off by heart
- Learn to sew on a button
- Build a den
- Play chess
Parents have been consulted on our Curriculum in 2022.
We have an Academic Curriculum with high expectations for all of our children. We cover the National Curriculum. We are implementing a skills and knowledge based curriculum that is purposeful and meaningful for the children who attend our school. It is sequenced to build on prior learning and our children are able to use ‘Golden Threads’. Our unique curriculum allows children to apply their skills and knowledge across the whole curriculum. PSHCE is woven through our academic curriculum.
We continuously review our curriculum to ensure that it is having an impact on all of our children.
All of our children receive a broad and balanced curriculum. We are confident that children leave our school and know the local history, can read, have had a wide range of opportunities (cultural capital), have demonstrated responsibility and are prepared for Y7.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At Bearpark Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. Our Curriculum is designed so that all children will access learning according to their needs. The full curriculum is accessible and includes all of the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report.
