At Barton Clough we have a curriculum that is relevant, engaging and exciting. We are currently making changes to bring it in line with the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum.

As part of our review and audit we are;

  • making sure our children are at the centre of all that we do. We believe strongly that the children should have a broad and balanced curriculum. Children at Barton are given additional opportunities to succeed in Music and Sport. Learning outdoors is also integral to our curriculum.
  • ensuring there are opportunities for for children to research, solve problems and work practically and co-operatively.
  • emphasising the core skills of speaking and listening, reading, writing, mathematics and science and how they can be applied across the curriculum.
  • exploring the characteristics of effective learners across the school. Are children resilient, motivated and engaged in learning?


Our Curriculum page will be updated with more detail soon.
