Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum Statement of Intent

Our aim is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that equips them for today, tomorrow and beyond.

At Pear Tree Primary School the curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers. As well as this we aim to foster confidence, independence, co-operation and self-esteem; all skills needed to prepare our children for life in 21st Century Britain.

Every child is recognised as a unique individual. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values with a vision to prepare them for life beyond primary school. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities to engage learning. Our curriculum pledge was introduced in September 2019 as we believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. The innovative practice offered at Pear Tree provides a strong foundation for learning and creates opportunities for children to work in teams and develop social skills both indoors and out. In this way it can be seen to impact in a very positive way on pupil outcomes. Enjoyment of the curriculum promotes achievement, confidence and excellent behaviour where children feel safe to try out new experiences. We promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.

Community involvement is an important part of our curriculum, inviting families and visitors to facilitate learning new skills and sharing experiences such as assemblies, curriculum outcomes, Do Something Different Week and STEAM week.

Sport has a high profile at Pear Tree, and pupils are introduced to a huge variety of activities to promote physical health and wellbeing. A range of clubs gives learners an opportunity to access a wide variety of activities after school hours and during lunch times. Traditional sports such as netball and football are complimented by yoga, boccia, tri-golf, tag rugby, dance, gymnastics and weekly swimming sessions.  Giving sport a focus across Pear Tree has engaged many children including those with SEND.


Our curriculum has developed and continues to develop over time.   Our Curriculum Leader oversees this work and reports to Governors regularly. We evaluate the knowledge, skills and understanding that the pupils have gained against the expectations agreed and evaluate our topics from this.  This ensures that we are constantly striving for improvement and ensuring that our curriculum is the best it can be.   


Children leave Pear Tree with the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.

Further Information

You will find the long term and medium term plans for each year group in school on the class page of the website.  Each planner outlines the objectives to be taught this school year; plans may be adapted as the year progresses.

Planning for each year group shows the topics taught as part of a broad and balanced curriculum. Some subjects are specified, whereas other curriculum areas may be incorporated into a theme (for example, British values, anti-bullying etc).

Covid 19 Statement

Since March 2020 we have endeavoured to provide an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum for our children but Covid 19 measures have meant that some of our practices and principles have been limited due to the restrictions put in place. We hope that during the academic year 2022-23 we can offer the engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum as we learn to live and learn alongside Covid.
