Curriculum Intent


At Spalding St Paul’s Primary School we aim to provide a creative, engaging, broad and flexible curriculum based on the interests of our pupils as well as ensuring coverage of the National Curriculum 

We provide a curriculum delivered by knowledgeable professionals, which provides transferable skills and based on first hand experiences and our core values. A curriculum that enriches learning, develops skills, and inspires children to become lifelong learners and reach their potential.
Our themes provide a context for learning, building in motivation and deeper immersive learning. Where there is not a natural link, we teach discreet subjects through a difficult theme or unit of work.
We teach English and maths as discreet subjects which received dedicated time everyday. This may be linked to the theme where suitable.
We enhance our learning with visits and visitors to school, as well as through extra-curriculuar clubs and activities. We also provide every class with regular Outdoor  and Adventurous Activity Days, and bespoke Outdoor Learning Workshops for groups of pupils. This is to provide for all pupils from Nursery through to Year 6.

  • Accelerated Reader is our main reading scheme, which we supplement with other reading books to encourage breadth and depth of reading. 
  • We use the White Rose Maths to support Teaching & Learning in Mathematics
