Curriculum Maps

At Essendon, we are committed to providing a broad, balanced and enriching curriculum for all of our pupils. Driven by our vision and values, we focus on a topic based learning approach, which change every half-term. Each of our topics are linked to both an Essendon value as well as 'curriculum drivers' e.g. Geography & Science. At the heart of every topic are quality texts, based on CLPE schemes of learning. For more on CLPE see here.

At Essendon we follow the 2014 National Curriculum
