At Elms Farm Primary School we have tailored our curriculum to meet the needs and interests of our children through our core values – ambition, community and equality. Our Subject Leaders ensure that the units are progressively taught and deliver the National Curriculum objectives for each subject area.
Our curriculum is tailored to deliver the key skills recommended by research produced by The Sutton Trust (2017) to enable pupils in similar contexts as Elms Farm to be ready for life beyond education. As our key priorities are reading, writing & mathematical skills, we also identify key texts to match to each unit with purposeful writing experiences and opportunities to develop mathematical skills in a real-life context.
