Our Curriculum
 

At Ireby Church of England school, the quality of our curriculum is central to supporting our Christian vision, 'Created to do good' Ephesians 2:10. Our curriculum is designed to motivate and inspire our children. As much as possible, our children learn through first-hand experience whether it is following the course of a river from source to mouth or working with local artists. Our learning has real purpose - we always ask ourselves how we can link it back to our vision, 'created to do Good'. We turned waste litter collected from Allonby beach into Christmas decorations or raised money for through a photography project. We love to link our learning to nature and the world around us. To support this style of learning we have a minibus and, as OFSTED said, 'we use it!' To see more, take a look at our Twitter page.

Our whole school curriculum starts in the Early Years Foundation Stage, where our learning is based on the 2021 EYFS Framework and Development Matters report. 

Our Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum is based on the 2014 National Curriculum and is also tailored to the needs of our school community. Our children and families come from all around the United Kingdom and beyond. They bring with them a range of experiences and outlooks, all of which contribute to making our school a diverse and stimulating environment.

Our curriculum is designed to be accessible by all our children, and complies with our duties set out in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational and Disability Regulations 2014.
