Hinde House

Primary Curriculum

Hinde House’s approach to teaching the wider curriculum is knowledge-rich, which means the focus is on giving our pupils a firm understanding of fundamental knowledge needed to apply to a wide variety of skills across the curriculum.

Our curriculum is designed to inspire enthusiasm for learning, ensure achievement for all and support pupil wellbeing and happiness.

An important principle underpinning all curriculum content choices and sequencing is respect for subject disciplines. Whether organised in discrete subjects or in ‘topic’ based approaches (for example, in primary academies), progression in knowledge and understanding in subjects will usually drive choices and decisions about curriculum design. Supported and challenged by senior leaders, subject/ phase leaders will usually lead on subject curriculum decisions.

Our curriculum will ensure access and inclusion. An overarching principle is equality of access to the curriculum. For example, SEND pupils and EAL learners will, wherever possible, be supported to access a common curriculum, rather than be taught a restricted or unduly narrowed curriculum.

At Hinde House, the wider curriculum is taught in a way that is broad, while providing opportunities for deeper thinking. Through the entire curriculum, we aspire to instil the school’s five Core Values and 4Rs in all of our pupils.


We pride ourselves in wider development opportunities, both morally and socially, with active learning opportunities, residential, competitions, engaging with the local community and visits out. Our curriculum has enabled us to look beyond our community, giving our pupils a global perspective.
