Curriculum Statement

Bildeston Primary Curriculum Statement

Our curriculum has been designed to ensure that every child is valued as an individual and that we offer stimulating and awe-inspiring learning experiences.   At Bildeston Primary School we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued.

Bildeston provides a highly inclusive environment where learners enjoy their education.  Pupils at all levels are helped to achieve their potential.

As a small, rural school we want to ensure that children develop as outward looking learners who are able to engage in learning about themselves and understand their community, the wider world and show respect for the diverse cultures of the world


Ultimately our curriculum is intended to give children a strong sense of self by understanding and developing:

  • who they are as individuals;
  • how they live and learn and where they fit in the world;
  • the value of their unique achievements;
  • and their aspirations, underpinned by our focus on achievement for all.
What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here. If you have any questions regarding the curriculum we teach, please contact the school directly.

In the national curriculum the government has set out the learning objectives which our children work towards. We use this to structure our own curriculum plan, but also incorporate additional work, especially commemorations and important events in the calendar.
