The Curriculum

At Hollingworth we teach a topic based, creative curriculum.  We are using a skills based approach to build a curriculum that meets the requirements of the statutory curriculum, raises standards and engages and enthuses children. If you would like more information on the school curriculum please contact the school office at admin@hollingworthprimary.co.uk 

Our creative curriculum

  • Has clear educational purpose.
  • Is delivered with imagination.
  • Has measurable educational value.

The statutory curriculum, reviewed in July 2014, includes programmes of study and attainment targets for every subject.  The breadth of study is divided up across each key stage so that all aspects are covered.  The programme of study comprises the essential knowledge, skills and understanding within subjects.
At Hollingworth we believe that the more real the learning experience, the more likely it is that children will engage.  Therefore we have created a topic based curriculum where topics are real to children.  Through planning we ensure educational purpose with the content steered by children.  Our 2 year rolling programme is as follows:-
