At Morton Primary School we embrace the changes made to the National Curriculum introduced in 2014.

The organisation of our curriculum reflects new expectations and changes to areas of learning. It prepares pupils by giving them lots of opportunities and experiences to prepare them for life in Modern Britain; through developing pupils’ independent learning and enquiry skills. 

Our creative Topic Maps provide a broad and balanced and exciting curriculum that will see a greater blend of subjects with pupils learning a wider set of skills. 

Some subjects like PE will be taught as discreet lessons and are not always able to be a taught within a topic but links are made where possible.

Teaching of Religious Education follows the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. Within RE lessons, as well as in other subjects where relevant, pupils are taught about the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of others with different faiths and beliefs. 

Each Curriculum Map is broken down into a 2 year cycle to reflect our current school organisation of mixed year classes. No child will repeat a Learning Challenge but will embed similar skills at different levels through a variety of learning challenges.
