Overview of Curriculum

At Abbots Ripton Primary School we are committed to planning and delivering an exciting and stimulating broad-based curriculum for all our pupils.

English and mathematics are central aspects of the primary curriculum but we recognise the importance of computing, science and design and technology in preparing children for today's world. We also fully value the importance of the ‘Arts’ in enriching our children's learning through creative studies and the importance of enquiry through history and geography. Our sport provision and healthy eating encourages our children to keep active and make the right choices to maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

Our curriculum is designed to develop an enquiring mind and a love for learning, to foster and develop imagination, investigation and independence. This ethos is woven into everything we do with our children, through well structured lessons and learning experiences, which lead to confident, enthusiastic learners, well prepared for secondary education and the changing pace and challenges of modern life.

  • Creative Days
