Cliffedale Primary School

Be the best that you can be

Our Curriculum

At Cliffedale, we aim to enable our children to all have an equitable opportunity to thrive and be the best they can be. We aim to give our children opportunities to be active in their learning. To be curious is to be engaged. We make cross-curricular links where appropriate while ensuring we have a full coverage of the National Curriculum in all subjects. It is aimed to build their curiosity within the subject they are being taught.

Mr Murphy is our Curriculum Lead and would be able provide additional information.
