Bucklesham Primary School

'Working Hard, Aiming High'


Our Curriculum



We believe learning should:

  • Develop enquiring minds that question, explore and investigate.
  • Provide opportunities for learners to apply core basic skills in real life situations.
  • Involve the whole community.
  • Enrich spiritual development so children can philosophise, debate, wonder, and question so they develop their own opinions and beliefs on a variety of issues whilst showing respect for others.
  • Ensure all pupils achieve by maintaining high expectations and personalising learning to suit all needs.


  Our Curriculum Statement

We aim to provide all children with an exciting and stimulating learning environment that fosters the development of the whole child, whilst maintaining high expectations and academic success. The curriculum should develop enquiring minds, deep thinking and investigation so children can apply basic key skills within real life situations.
