The Curriculum at Shepley

In addition to the National Curriculum, our wider curriculum is centred around five ‘Key Drivers’.  These are:

  • Global Awareness
  • Environmental Awareness
  • Philosophical, Moral and Ethical thought
  • Literacy and Oracy
  • All Things Outdoors

Each half term, these drivers are addressed through a whole school focus and aim to educate the children about the world in which they live and to ensure that our teaching is as ‘rich in humanity as it is in knowledge’ (Debra Kidd).  

Our long term plan of whole-school themes is as follows:

Autumn 1

Autumn 2

Spring 1

Spring 2

Summer 1

Summer 2

I Matter, You Matter, We Matter


What we’ll build. Plans for a together future.

Evolution (growing)

Wild World


  • Please note that due to the Covid 19 lockdown, What We’ll Build, will be taught in Spring 2 for the academic year 2020-2021

Each half term’s learning has been carefully planned to ensure coverage of all the National Curriculum subject content for each year group over the course of the year. The specific curriculum content for each half term can be found in detail in the intent and implementation document.  This document gives a detailed outline of the learning for the half term, including the key texts that will be studied and key figures of historical, artistic, political, scientific, or other inspirational significance.  The document outlines the year group progression in knowledge, understanding and skills for each subject that will be taught that half term and provides key pedagogical background relating to the purpose of each subject area. 

Please see below for the document relating to our next theme ‘What We’ll Build’.  We will continue to upload this information in advance of each new theme.
