Penruddock Curriculum

Penruddock’s curriculum is personalised to meet the needs of all our children within our school context. Our learning is built upon our school values of:


Friendship, Trust, Respect, Perseverance, Compassion and Community


These threads secure positive learning experiences for all our children and are key to the successful delivery of all our learning. They ensure our children are motivated to learn and enable academic growth within a safe and comfortable learning environment in which our children can achieve their best.

Our curriculum follows the National Curriculum for every subject but our cross-curricular topics or learning themes enable us to tailor the content to meet the needs and interests of our learners. Our classes are mixed age and so our curriculum runs on a two year rolling programme. We use Chris Quigley’s Essentials Curriculum and a selection of additional schemes to ensure we deliver progressive skills in all subjects across the age ranges. Content and skills are carefully mapped to ensure all children experience and develop their age related content whilst building upon their prior learning and consolidating the skills and understanding from earlier learning themes.

Additional schemes used include:


                     Power Maths - Maths                                Little Wandle - Phonics 

                     Rising Stars - Spelling                              Westmorland and Furness Agreed Syllabus  - RE

                     Purple Mash - Computing                          Stem Learning Solutions Primary Science -   Science
