At Kempsey we have a topic-based curriculum which planned carefully to meet the needs of all pupils. The topics are organised around a theme and are supported, where appropriate, through the International Primary Curriculum.
We follow the National Curriculum and endeavour provide as many opportunities for curriculum 'enrichment' as possible.
To see our two year curriculum map, please see below.
A link to the National Curriculum can be found here.

At Kempsey we believe in providing rich opportunities for learning both in and out of the classroom. Our curriculum is broader than just the National Curriculum. Through careful topic planning, we aim to bring the curriculum to life with meaningful learning experiences. Examples of enrichment across the school include:
Whole school topic stimuli
Topic launch days
Topic enrichment homework activities
Visits to places of worship
Clubs- a range from sports to crafts!
Further examples of curriculum enrichment, but by no means an exhaustive list, can be found below.
