If you would like to find out more about our curriculum please speak to Miss Guy or a Class Teacher.



At Cradley School we hope that children know more and remember more through a curriculum that is coherently planned and sequenced, enabling children to thrive and be inquisitive, creative learners.  A key focus for our curriculum is questioning, we want to provide children with the skills required to think deeply about concepts taught and how they can be applied to different and unfamiliar contexts. 

Our curriculum aim is for it to be rich, varied and engaging, developing resilience and an excitement to learn, a key skill for their future. We encourage and promote British Values within our curriculum, encouraging an appreciation of differences and tolerance of each other through creativity, hoping to inspire and motivate all children to be the best they can be.


Curriculum subjects are taught thematically over 3 themes a year. In Reception and KS1 we operate a 2 year rolling program for most subjects. As things build in KS2 we operate a 3 year rolling program for Years 3, 4 and 5 so that a child will have the same experience regardless of the class they are in. In Year 6 we operate a 1 Year rolling program as they are a stand alone class.


 Subject leaders monitor all subjects once a term and update their subject's action plan. THis could be done though book looks, pupil voice, conversations with teachers, questionnaires and lesson observations. 

Class teachers will keep records of the child's achievement of the skills progression which will then be passed to the next class teacher. Where a teacher sees that the children are not developing resilience, an excitement to learn, questioning and applying their learning to different and unfamiliar contexts, they will be adaptable in their planning and approach.


Our curriculum is fully inclusive, raising the support for the child, rather than lowering the curriculum focus. We aim to meet the needs of all children, through discussion with multiple agencies, early identification of need and parents. We then adapt the resources and support to meet all children's needs. We see the importance in supporting those children who have barriers to learning in core subjects so that they can still become fantastic geographers, historians, artists, designers, sportsman, philosophers, linguists, scientists, and programmers.
