At Elmlea, we offer pupils a rich and diverse curriculum, which celebrates learning through a range of creative topics. We believe that children learn best when they are confident to ‘have a go’; to take risks and to understand that they can learn from mistakes. We want children to reflect on how best they learn and to continue to challenge themselves to ‘become better learners’. We also believe that children learn best when they are engaged and excited about what they are learning.

To ensure this, the school have established a set of ‘Curriculum Values’; which underpin all learning that we do here at Elmlea: 

1. Valuing diversity 

2. Promoting independence and resilience 

3. Developing creative risk-takers 

4. Striving for our personal best 

5. Developing teamwork 


Our curriculum ensures that meaningful links are made between subjects and that pupils have a voice when considering topic choices and coverage of the skills and knowledge stated within statutory guidance.

Below are our current Curriculum Maps that each detail the topics and units of work for each year group, showing at which point during the year they will be covered.
