Curriculum Intent Statement


Our school celebrates its own identity, with the assurance that the curriculum enables us to build strong relationships, celebrate diversity, encourage respect and build a sense of community. It provides and acknowledges success for all children, in all aspects of their emotional, social and academic development. It develops the skills set to enable every child to ‘Let Your Light Shine’ and therefore become a confident and important member of society in modern Britain.

To enable the children of Castor Church of England Primary School to achieve a confident and positive attitude to lifelong learning, through high levels of curiosity, concentration and enjoyment, we will deliver an engaging subject-based curriculum and ensure first quality teaching that strives:

  • To deliver the National Curriculum to ALL pupils
  • To equip all learners to know more and remember more
  • To engage and challenge passive learners to become resilient and confident
  • To address language deficit, by broadening and enhancing rich vocabulary
  • To build an ambitious mind-set to develop and achieve high aspirations in all aspects of their lives
  • To enable every child to step into the wider world with confidence, curiosity and a thirst for lifelong learning

Our curriculum is underpinned by our Christian Values to develop every child’s capacity for spiritual awareness of the world around them.

  • Friendship
  • Kindness
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Trust
  • Forgiveness

Our learners will understand local, national and global perspectives, with a strong sense of self-identity and social responsibility with high aspirations. They will develop a genuine love and enjoyment of learning characterised by positive behaviours including resilience, perseverance, and resourcefulness and with the confidence to learn.

In summary, our children will learn more, know more, remember more, enjoy more and develop more academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally. Thus, enabling them to be resilient and confident in all challenges within the next stages of education and their further life. Our children will then forever be the best versions of themselves in all aspects of modern life today.
