Curriculum


‘A new and original idea is new and original the first time an individual discovers it.’

At Finham Primary School we have created a skills-driven curriculum that looks at the learning journey each child needs to take to ensure they are being challenged and can see the pathways to their progress and intended outcomes. Each curriculum area has been carefully aligned with the National Curriculum and we have added key aspects based on maximising the resources and talents in our school community.
We want a curriculum that is fit for purpose to ensure the learners of today are the resilient, adaptable, global citizens of tomorrow.


Children at Finham learn through a broad and balanced, relevant curriculum that challenges and inspires them to learn, by putting cognitive approaches at the centre of the objectives and activities. Our holistic curriculum encompasses: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, cultural, moral and spiritual development. It also builds self–esteem and confidence. Accordingly, pupils are able to apply and transfer their knowledge and understanding to reasoning and problem solving thereby giving them a greater depth of comprehension. Through “The Finham Experience”, we offer a unique curriculum from the moment children become part of the Finham family. This unique experience promotes wellbeing and develops children’s awareness of the world around them and an appreciation of the natural environment.
