Our Curriculum

At Chorlton CE our vision is:


  • To put every child and their family at the centre of all decisions we make – (UNICEF Rights Aware School)
  • To create a warm, positive and loving environment in which to learn and work
  • To have Christian & British values permeate a rich and varied curriculum resulting in excellent outcomes for all
  • To provide an inclusive education, developing resilience and independence for all children who face any barriers to their learning
  • To make the safety and well-being of all pupils, families and staff as important as our achievements in learning


Shaping our Curriculum

From this we have developed a ‘knowledge-engaged’ curriculum where knowledge and skills are intertwined; we do not perceive a tension between these areas of learning.  With a clear curriculum overview drawn from the National Curriculum, we have carefully mapped the knowledge and skills in an age-appropriate and progressive way from Nursery-Y6. This ensures that pupils are able to build upon prior knowledge and apply skills across the curriculum. Where appropriate, cross curricular links are made, in order for the curriculum to be relevant and meaningful for pupils and to put knowledge into context.


At the same time, through the curriculum, pupils’ spiritual/emotional, moral, social and cultural wellbeing is nurtured. When they leave Chorlton CE as well as achieving in their learning they will also be prepared for life, with resilience, compassion and having developed courageous advocacy.

For details of how each curriculum area has been shaped and an overview of the progression of skills and knowledge please see individual curriculum subject pages
