We follow the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage. At Uplands, we have also designed and created our own ‘PRIME’ curriculum. which is explained in more detail below. The PRIME curriculum is our driving force behind all of our planning for our curriculum.

We want to build meaningful and explicit links between subjects and topics, and help children create relationships between skills taught, as well as places and events in time. Children can then use their skills and knowledge in a range of situations and topics. This includes the interconnectivity (relationships) between different subjects and learning (e.g. History links with Art/Music or geographical locations of events).
We want our children to understand the impact of what we are learning in relation to:
We want our children to:
We want our children to be given the opportunity to have rich experiences which motivate and inspire them, and shape future interests and learning. We want to equip pupils with the knowledge and ‘cultural capital’ to succeed in later life. At Uplands, Cultural Capital means the skills, knowledge and connections acquired from a range of different experiences that allow pupils depth of understanding in a variety of areas.
Under each subject heading, you will find links to the long term plans for each year group. You will also find links to our ‘Curriculum Offers’ which set out in more detail how each subject is taught at Uplands.
We will teach and assess our subjects with a clear rationale:
Our curriculum results in high pupil outcomes for all, regardless of starting points.
