Claverley CE (Aided) Primary School

The Curriculum

As well as good academic achievement in English and Mathematics, children should have access to a broad, exciting and engaging curriculum enabling them to become better thinkers, independent learners and having the ability to collaborate. At Claverley CE Primary, children are taught in mixed age classes with the exception of KS2 maths which is taught in year groups.

The School’s curriculum content includes all those areas specified in the National Curriculum, providing a base for an education that ensures quality and progression. Using the National Curriculum as our starting point, we plan learning experiences for our children which are engaging. Claverley School is set in an area of great beauty and we take every opportunity for the children to appreciate this.  Skills learned in English and Mathematics are transferred and applied other areas in the curriculum.

Core Subjects

English, Mathematics and Science.

Foundation Subjects

Design Technology, Computing, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Art and Design, and Modern Foreign Language (KS2).

Religious Education (R.E.)

Religious Education is based on the guidelines in the Shropshire Agreed Syllabus and teaches about Christianity and other major faiths as well. We provide a daily assembly for every pupil. The nature of this assembly may on occasions be of a broadly Christian character, although not distinctive of any particular denomination.

Collective Worship has a central position in our school. Collective Worship is held daily, as a whole school. Collective Worship is carefully planned through half termly themes which provide valuable opportunities for spiritual, cultural, moral and social development. We aim to provide high quality worship which is stimulating and enjoyable for all participants. Worship sessions include opportunities for sharing experiences, singing, prayer and quiet reflection. Parents are entitled to withdraw their children from Collective Worship and should contact the Headteacher if they wish to exercise this right.
