Malvern Parish C.E Primary School Curriculum


At Malvern Parish C.E Primary School, we believe in lifelong learning and that both children and adults learn new things every day. We recognise that the value of teaching comes from the outcome it produces. This means its value in terms of its effect on what and how children learn. Teaching for learning is at the heart of school life; it is the means by which we offer and put into practice a curriculum that is creative, broad and balanced, while meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and Diocese agreed syllabus for Religious Education and Collective Worship.


We maintain that learning should be a rewarding, exciting and enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives. We place emphasis on developing the whole child and believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives.


Curriculum Aims


  • To provide stimulating, engaging and practical learning that will inspire and challenge all learners and prepare them for the future.

  • To broaden and enhance pupils’ awareness of the impact of their choices on the environment, highlighting their responsibilities as global citizens



In Key Stage 1 we use a number of Reading schemes to support children's reading ability and maximise children's enjoyment levels that, in-turn, nurture a life-long love of Reading.  We use Oxford Reading Tree and Project X books.  Additionally, in Key Stage 1 we use the Letters and Sounds document to support the teaching of Phonics. 



If you have any questions about the curriculum please make an appointment to see your child's class teacher.
