At Sunny Bank Primary School, our aim is to provide a broad, balanced, and engaging curriculum which will enable our children to gain the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to develop as educated, well-balanced global citizens in this ever-changing world.

Below is a headline view of our school curriculum.

Intent’ is what we set out to do; ‘Implementation’ is how we go about delivering the curriculum and ‘Impact’ is how we measure the success or effectiveness of the curriculum and its delivery.

You can read about specific subject areas in more detail by selecting the options from the curriculum tab above.


For our Reception (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum information please see here.



  • A curriculum which at least meets national curriculum statutory requirements; is broad, balanced, sequential and interconnected
  • A curriculum that allows children to showcase their abilities and build long-term, positive learning behaviours
  • A curriculum that engenders high-levels of oracy, literacy and mathematical understanding
  • A curriculum that prepares children as citizens, with good levels of personal development across the wider curriculum
  • A curriculum that actively promotes and provides extra-curricular personal development opportunities


  • EYFS follows the new statutory framework and best practice from Development Matters 2021
  • KS1-2 follows the national curriculum but does not use this as a limiter for programmes of study (PoS)
  • Pedagogy is underpinned by research from sources such as the EEF (CPD, assessment and feedback) and delivery (Rosenshine’s principles)
  • Curriculum knowledge and skill progression is clearly sequenced through Programmes of Study
  • The curriculum makes connections to different subject domains but does not look to ‘crow bar’ cross-curricular links
  • Reading centric: this is key to pupils accessing the curriculum
  • Class texts are key for each ‘block of learning’ (BoL)
  • Assessment is timely, standardised and provides educators with clear information/next steps that are acted upon (AfL)


  • Children are enthused and motivated learners who show resilience and rise to challenges
  • Children can make connections between different subject domains and contexts to further reinforce knowledge connections or common threads
  • Children build knowledge incrementally, resulting in them remembering more and knowing more
  • Children are prepared for the next transition
