At the Beamish and Pelton Federation all children, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, are given every opportunity to develop their confidence, knowledge, self-esteem and life skills through technology, languages, religious and cultural learning, physical education and the creative and performing arts. The school curriculum follows the current principles from the EYFS curriculum and the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities.
Our Curriculum also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’ We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve all that they can.
If you have any questions about our curriculum or the work we do in school, please contact the school and speak to your child’s class teacher or alternatively, contact our Headteacher, Mrs Edwards, who will be happy to help.
Below are the curriculum maps for each year group. Here at Beamish Primary, we sometimes combine two curriculum maps as a result of teaching mixed age classes. For example, Year 3 and 4 children may follow Year 3 curriculum one year and then Year 4 curriculum the following year as part of a mixed age class moving up throughout the school,
