Curriculum Maps

Our curriculum map shows the learning undertaken from the Early Years through to Year 6.  In the Early Years (Nursery and Reception) we follow the statutory guidance of the EYFS framework. For years 1 – 6 we follow the National Curriculum.

Subjects are taught in units that are planned to enable the development of knowledge and skills alongside gaining understanding of key themes and ideas. Vocabulary is a key element of this.  Each subject is valued as its own discipline.  Where possible links are made to ensure there is a connection in learning.  Cross-curricular learning where possible enables a chance for deepening understanding across subjects or units within subjects.

The Eglinton curriculum aims to enable pupils to:

  • Value and understand the importance of their ongoing education.

  • Become confident, positive learners who make effective progress and achieve their potential.

  • Understand how to live a safe, healthy and happy life.


  • Learning is purposefully planned to build upon prior learning and develop deeper understanding from FS – Y6.

  • Clear progression documents (based on the National Curriculum) account for how the curriculum is both spiral and interleaved; accounting for prior knowledge, key objectives (from the National Curriculum), key vocabulary and key themes. We focus on both the journey our curriculum takes children on and the role of cognitive psychology to build up knowledge and skills.

  • A dialogic approach where teachers ‘Think Out Loud’ (Lets Think!) is consistent in curriculum delivery to ensure pupils are able to engage with their learning and analyse their thoughts.


 Our curriculum:

  • Promotes ambitious, aspirational high standards in Reading, Writing and Maths – readying children for their next stage of education.

  • Exposes children to quality texts and a love of reading, across the curriculum.

  • Is broad, balanced and well-structured; with sequenced learning that ensures progress in each subject.

  • Values subjects as a discipline in their own right.

  • Provides children with a sense of wellbeing and pride in all that they achieve.

  • Offers a broad range of enrichment opportunities to further support the development of cultural capital.
