Ambleside Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact

At Ambleside CE Primary School we deliver a broad and balanced creative curriculum which we designed using the National Curriculum as a starting point.    We have also designed our curriculum to incorporate learning from topics and subjects in our local surrounding areas.  For example, we study historical figures from the Lake District and investigate geographical features of the local area.  We strive to include learning in the outdoors as much as possible as we believe that children benefit greatly from this. We also have two accredited Forest School Level 3 practitioners who lead forest school sessions in Key Stage 1 and 2, and Level 1 trained staff who run Forest Friday sessions with our Early Years children.  

Our primary curriculum includes the core areas of learning and experiences which are essential to children's development and which are defined within the National Curriculum.  

These are:

Our Religious Education follows the agreed syllabus from the Diocese of Carlisle. Children also study the following foundation subjects through a topic themed, cross-curricular approach (where possible, incorporating the core subjects).

This year, we are introducing a revised curriculum following a review of our vision.  This further ensures a clear progression of skills and knowledge throughout a child's life at Ambleside CE Primary School.  Please click on the individual subject links above for subject specific information.

*As our curriculum is being revised, new documents are being adding regularly to subject specific pages.*
