Our Curriculum

At Moulsecoomb Primary School, we have planned an exciting, inspiring curriculum that will be taught through different topics.

We wish to ensure our key focus is to encourage and support the skills children need to develop as independent, confident learners.

Each class teacher is responsible for the delivery of the curriculum through a ‘topic based’ approach which incorporates key skills as set out in the National Curriculum.
