Our learning

                               Our curriculum offer

 Our vision is to provide a caring and nurturing environment, where everyone is given opportunities to learn, discover and grow in our changing world. We will live out our Christian values of Respect, Hope, Love, Forgiveness, Trust and Honesty and strive to guide our community into leading fruitful lives, learning from Jesus’s teachings, to love themselves and one another in order to achieve success. With the support of their teachers and teaching assistants, we can give every child the best as we learn and grow together in God's family.

Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life.

Proverbs 22:6


Our broad and rich curriculum at Cleeve Prior C of E Primary School promotes a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning. Our distinctly Christian vision is at the heart of all we do. Our curriculum is planned and sequenced in order to build knowledge and skills throughout the school, providing opportunities for all pupils to achieve success. Our curriculum has been structured to allow pupils to make links between subjects and themes and builds upon key concepts and vocabulary. It has a positive impact on all pupils’ behaviour and safety, developing their resilience, confidence and independence and helping them to know how to keep physically and mentally healthy. We aim for children to leave our school equipped to be respectful, tolerant, active citizens who contribute positively to society and have a clear understanding of fundamental British and Christian values.
