Curriculum Plans

During the primary phase of their education, we ensure that children are fit and ready for their future through developing their understanding of our six core values, mastering the fundamental knowledge and skills of our curriculum and weaving Oracy, Literacy and Language throughout everything that we do. This ensures that children are ready to progress to the Secondary campus by the time they finish Year 6.


Our flexible curriculum is designed with ambition, for all of our pupils, to create a broad range of opportunities and memorable experiences which ensure that children are:



Show respect

Enjoy a challenge

Celebrate diversity

…and are Ready and fit for their future!

We ensure that we develop children’s strength of character by designing our curriculum around key themes which support children’s global development. Some subjects are linked to key themes to ensure real depth of learning and other subjects are taught all year round.


  • Our core values drive everything that we do so that we can develop the holistic child with an explicit focus on developing the children’s strength of character and personal development
  • We plan backwards from an ambitious, agreed end point so that quality first teaching leads to high quality outcomes
  • We do this through clear, consistent and progressive teaching sequences so that pupils master knowledge, skills and understanding for each curriculum area that lead to meaningful, high quality outcomes.
  • Key and skills are taught explicitly so that they can be mastered and applied within and across the curriculum and beyond. 
  • Knowledge is organised coherently to ensure progression so that pupils have strong core knowledge across our rich curriculum.
  • We develop children’s understanding through rich, connected learning opportunities and experiences so that pupils can connect new knowledge with existing knowledge
  • Along with our core values, we provide a language rich environment, with an emphasis on talk and vocabulary, which underpins our curriculum so that children can thrive and become confident, literate individuals
  • We effectively use assessment for and of learning so that we can identify next steps for pupils on their journey to true mastery and depth


Achievement at Roundhay is defined as children knowing more, remembering more and being able to do more across our broad and rich curriculum. This leads to pupils who are ready and fit for the next stage of their education. We measure this through a 360 degree top level review of our schools curriculum and dive deep into every aspect of work in our relentless pursuit of excellence for every child.
