Curriculum

At Hardwick and Cambourne Community Primary School we believe that the best curriculum should ignite a life-long passion for learning in our children. Our topic based curriculum is one that is purposeful yet creative; one that that seeks to combine the rigorous requirements of the National Curriculum with meaningful learning experiences that kindle curiosity and develop the skills needed to take joy from the sense of discovering new things. We pride ourselves on our inclusive culture in which diversity and sense of belonging are celebrated and where close community links share expertise and model good citizenship.

Our curriculum allows children to take managed risks, where they learn to recognise and value their own well-being, integral to making their own informed choices. It raises awareness of issues and events from the local area to national and global arenas. Moreover, it encourages and celebrates pupil voice and allows all children to feel valued and successful. We want our children to leave us with the confidence, drive and sense of a wider purpose needed to thrive in, not only their own learning journey, but life.
