At Burneston C of E Aided School, the curriculum is based on the Foundation Stage Guidance, The National Curriculum and the Agreed Syllabus for RE – Diocese of Bradford, Ripon and Leeds.

We deliver a curriculum that builds on children’s learning and meets the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. Our curriculum includes opportunities to:

  • Become more independent and develop our thinking skills
  • Celebrate and study national events
  • Take part in local competitions and events, including sporting and music events
  • Have experience of being away from home and parents
  • Experience/learn about a range cultures within Britain
    .and not forgetting that some of this learning will be done through baking, cooking and tasting which we enjoy at Burneston!

At Burneston School our curriculum is based on research and current pedagogy.  It is flexible and responsive to the needs of our pupils and the community which we serve.    Care and thought have been given to the order in which we teach, and the skills which children will acquire as they progress through our school.  We recognise that what we teach and how we teach should be interlinked in order to give our children the best outcomes and so we review and revisit both processes regularly.

At Burneston CE VA Primary School, we commit to making the physical and mental wellbeing of our school community paramount. We drive this message forward, to ensure that mental health is “everyone’s business” across the whole school community. We strive to create an environment, which has a whole school approach, in providing excellent mental health support, understanding and intervention. Our wellbeing provision is a collaborative approach. We quickly adapt our teaching, interventions and provision based on the needs of our stakeholders and work closely with them to ensure they receive the support they need. Our ‘Think and Thrive’ curriculum enhances our wellbeing provision in school and is tailored to be responsive to the needs of the children, parents and staff in our setting. This approach enables children to immerse themselves with positive relationships, understand how to keep themselves safe, explore different perspectives and feel empowered.  Wellbeing is at the heart of our school; every child has the right to flourish.
