At North Cadbury C of E Primary School we are passionate about our high standards and the quality of teaching and learning across all areas. You need only look at our Gallery or our Newsletters to see that our children have a very full and broad curriculum which they engage with and enjoy enormously. We are firm advocates that our curriculum is not only Reading, Writing and Maths, but every single planned experience (& occasionally unplanned) that we give our children.
We delight in being a small village school with a warm community that sits alongside and supports our distinctive Christian culture. This helps to ensure that all children at North Cadbury are actively encouraged to be ambitious, resilient and inventive, with every child’s achievements and efforts celebrated. This is important because the most important job of our curriculum is to prepare our children for the next stage in their lives/education. We really do want them to be the best that they can be ☺️.
Our aim is for our children to leave North Cadbury as global citizens with enquiring minds, a love of learning, a passion for reading, and the confidence to face those next steps. We also want them to know and expect excellence, and be successful. Indeed the aims set out in the National Curriculum, very clearly align with our own aims:
'The National Curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
The National Curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications.'
