Our curriculum journey

Our Curriculum 

After some years of developing our foundation subject curriculum, we have, since March 2020, invested in a revised offer, building on what we learnt and reflecting a developing trust-wide curriculum in the subjects history, geography, science, art and DT. This was and continues to be a significant work, but it will enable us to develop closer links with our partner trust primary schools and create a robust curriculum offer for our pupils, drawing on staff expertise across all our primary school settings. This allows us to create links between staff teams in partner schools and thus positively impact workload and extend opportunities to share ideas and collaboratively moderate standards in the future.

Our curriculum is carefully sequenced and knowledge-rich; it aims to inspire pupils and promote excellent outcomes for all. The curriculum content in each subject area has been carefully selected based on national guidance, local knowledge and relevant research. Curriculum teams developed content, each subject organised to ensure progression and consistency, ensuring that children can build on their knowledge from year to year. In this way, the knowledge in the curriculum is cumulative, constructing firm foundations from which children can progress and develop deeper conceptual understanding and subject-specific skills over time. Subject content has been selected to provide a curriculum which is relevant to our own Daresbury Primary School children – to reflect their context locally – and establish the foundations for lifelong learning.


The school curriculum is underpinned by the school's three rules: Kind, Safe and Ready and our three values: Kindness, Integrity and Tenacity. 

The ongoing journey...

We understand at Daresbury that we will constantly be adapting and developing our curriculum and that this is part of the school's ongoing journey as we respond to the ever-changing world around us.  As we considered the workplace for our current pupils and the fact that the majority of them will be employed in jobs that currently don't exist, we considered the ways that we could ensure our children would have the essential skills and characteristics to enable them to be successful. We have introduced curriculum drivers: Aspiring Entrepreneurs, Innovators and Curriculum Builders.  

For any further information about our curriculum, please get in touch with the school, and we will be happy to provide additional details.
