Curriculum Drivers

Our curriculum drivers are derived from our vision and values and from our children:

  1. Creativity

Through imaginative design and active learning, our curriculum we provide real-life, purposeful and meaningful learning opportunities to inspire and engage the children and to make learning relevant and memorable. Our curriculum enables our children to be creative thinkers, to seek alternative options and solve problems. Our immersive classrooms inspire and motivate learners.

  1. Communication

We want communication and language to be at the heart of learning throughout the curriculum. Our curriculum enables our children to communicate effectively. Reading, spoken language and vocabulary development are key.

  1. Citizenship

We use our curriculum to nurture children into confident, caring citizens. Our  curriculum and its delivery support well-being, both for the children themselves and in their consideration for others. Kindness and empathy are key. We have a curriculum which raises awareness of real-life issues in our world and challenges children to make a positive difference.


Todwick Primary School aims to:

  • Ensure that learning is fun and memorable.
  • Deliver a stimulatingcurriculum through active and experiential learning .
  • Offer an exciting, immersive environment to engage children
  • Nurture children so that they are happy and secure with an individual sense of self worth.  Achievements will be celebrated and valued by all.
  • Create a positive, caring atmosphere which reflects our shared values and promotes a sense of community.  
  • Develop a community of confident, life-long learners and responsible citizens.
  • Promote challenge through high expectations of learning and behaviour.
  • Grow and change but remain true to our vision

We believe in the promotion of confidence and self-belief and embracing diversity. Our school is inclusive. We want all of our children to feel welcomed, accepted, happy and fulfilled. We recognise that all children are different and that these differences create opportunities for adults and children alike to learn more about themselves and to respect each other. 

If a child has a disability they will be treated no less favourably than other children. We will make reasonable adjustments to ensure that pupils with disabilities are not placed at a substantial disadvantage.  Accessibility arrangements are already in place in order to enable physical access to the school, the curriculum and to written information for all people.

We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that people with a disability are not treated differently without lawful justification. We will make reasonable adjustments for disabled pupils and we will know we have succeeded when disabled students are participating fully in school life.

The school has a policy for supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) which is available from the school office or the school website www.todwickps.co.uk.  Our aim is for all children to have access to all aspects of school life, as far as is reasonable and practicable.
