Our Curriculum

At Broomhaugh the heart of our curriulum is underpinned by providing opportunities for all of our children to develop socially, emotionally, pastorally and academically.


Our curriculum has 3 main aims:

  • To enable children to learn - to know and do. We want to foster the aquisition of knowledge and understanding of how they can learn both socially, academically and pasorally in orde that they are prepared for the next stage in their life.
  • To enable children to question, reason and explore- We want our children to form their own opinions, to search and find out more, to explore and ask questioins and to solve problems when ideas seem challenging or difficult to grasp. 
  • To enable children to create, communicate and share their learning - We want all of our children to make prgress from their starting points. We want them to become confident to share their ideas, what they know and can do and to prepare them to make a valuable contribution to our community and beyond. 
We offer a broad, balanced curriculum relevant to the needs of each of our pupils, within the setting of a lively stimulating environment.  We strive to ensure that each individual has the opportunity to develop to his or her full potential.  Children are encouraged to become enthusiastic: self motivated; self-disciplined; independent learners.

From Reception through to Year 4 we follow the statutory guidance in planning and delivering our curriculum.


Individual class curriculum information is shared on each year group's page. 


Any further information required about the curriculum can be requested from class teachers.


Our curriculum is enhanced through specialist teaching in Music, Physical Education and Modern Foreign Languages.


We follow the RE Syllabus for Church Schools set out by the Diocese of Durham Board of Education and Newcastle Diocesan Education Board.


Teachers adapt and personalise the curriculum ensuring the children have opportunities to learn about and from religions and become inquisitive reflective learners.
