Kempsey Primary School

To learn with respect and belief; to challenge, create and dream!


At Kempsey we have a topic-based curriculum which planned carefully to meet the needs of all pupils, building on prior learning and consolidating knowledge and skills. The topics are generally organised around a theme, with certain curriculum areas being used as 'drivers' for learning. Within the topics we plan logical sequences of work, referring to whole-school progression maps to ensure that standards and progression are evident across the school. 


An example of a planning topic web can be found here

We follow the National Curriculum and endeavour provide as many opportunities for curriculum 'enrichment' as possible.


A link to the National Curriculum can be found here.


This year we have looked closely at our curriculum content and have established maps for each year group. We also retain a degree of flexibility so that we can deliver whole-school topics designed to address subject areas that we feel are important to the children at our school. Previous examples include:


Rights of the child

Global environmental awareness


'This is me'- a celebration of difference and body-confidence


At Kempsey Primary School all class teachers are responsible for providing a curriculum that is suitable for all pupils in the class, including those with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) with support from the SENCo. We have high expectations and are committed to ensuring our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. Additional information on this can be found in our Special Educational Needs Information Report and Equalities Policy.


Curriculum enrichment


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

External speakers

Visits to places of worship

Clubs- a range from sports to crafts!

Theatre trips

Museum trips

School Parliament


Bell-boating regatta

Residential trips

Class assemblies


Further examples of curriculum enrichment, but by no means an exhaustive list, can be found below.
