At Sleights Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that our children are motivated, inspired and enthused by a curriculum that meets everybody’s needs.


As a strategic partner in the Esk Valley Teaching Alliance, their agreed long term plan of objectives and curriculum coverage informs our own Sleights' curriculum. These objectives follow those of the National Curriculum and focus on developing children’s understanding, skills, knowledge and interest in order to reach the age related expectations.


Our creative curriculum follows a broad theme each term. We invite ideas and suggestions for tackling these themes from our children and families and integrate these wherever possible.


For 2018/2019, our curriculum themes are:


Autumn 2018: Our Yorkshire

Spring 2019: Chocolate

Summer 2018: Over the hill and far away...


A full copy of the Long Term Plan and individual subject coverage can be found below.
