At Yaxham Primary School we teach the National Curriculum (2014).
Our duty is to help develop literate and numerate children. English and Maths are usually taught as discreet subjects every school day. These skills are practised and applied throughout the broader curriculum. Our children are encouraged to become active, engaged and hard-working learners, who will develop a life-long love of learning.
We believe that our children deserve to have positive and varied learning experiences (both in school and out) and encourage them to approach life scientifically, technologically, artistically, musically and spiritually.
As a church school, we are committed to help develop the children's knowledge, awareness and understanding of their own beliefs and the beliefs of others. Our children understand their rights as individuals but also their responsibilities to others. We have a two year planning cycle in place to ensure children learn about and from the worlds major religions as well as Christianity.
Our curriculum reflects our school's place within our village, our county, our nation and our world. Central to it are the needs of each individual child as we journey with them towards greater academic, social, emotional and spiritual fulfillment.
