“The curriculum … is becoming a real strength of this school”

(OfSTED, January 2014)

The curriculum at Stakesby Community Primary is lively, exciting and centred around developing and learning new skills.

Every term, the whole school follows one theme that allows for coverage of many exciting and engaging topics. This year (2014/15), our theme titles are:

  • Autumn: What a Performance!
  • Spring: Similar Places, Different Lives
  • Summer: From A to B

Within each theme, we ask for input from the children to help direct the work that is covered. All these ideas are linked to the National Curriculum (September 2014) For the content of the curriculum each year group follows for each subject, please find downloads at the bottom of this page that details this information. These documents are also shared on the each class webpage and are sent home with children at the beginning of each term.

For further information relating to our curriculum, please find an attached summary. To find out more, why not visit our "Supporting learning at home tab?" (under the Parents section)

When a drone visited Stakesby!

Paul from YorkshireDroneServices.com recently visited Stakesby with his drone to take some images of the children spelling out the word 'GOOD' in celebration of our recent Ofsted success. Year 5 used problem solving techniques in a maths lesson to work out the area that the children had to stand in and how the children and letters would be arranged. A huge 'Thank You' to Paul for his services and patience and keep an eye out in the Whitby Gazette for the images!
