At Rye Community Primary School ‘curriculum’ means a child’s whole school experience including being secondary school ready with the right knowledge and skills for the next stage of their educational journey.

We believe all members of our community should have access to a broad and balanced curriculum which recognises the importance of literacy and numeracy in all children’s lives. Through our curriculum we offer all children an equitable experience regardless of starting point, socio economic status, race, culture, gender, religion to maximise life chances in the future and to open our pupils’ eyes to a world full of endless possibilities. We have developed a mastery maths programme, a school-wide literacy strategy and a child-centred topic-based approach to the foundation curriculum, which together enables pupils to:

  • Develop skills, deep knowledge and understanding in a range of subjects;
  • Benefit from sequential planning and make meaningful cross-curricular links;
  • Identify their interests and develop their passions;
  • Learn about a range of relevant topics in creative and engaging ways;
  • Find out about themselves, the wider world and their place in it;
  • Develop their confidence, resilience, happiness and well-being.
