Buxworth Primary School Curriculum Statement


At Buxworth, we believe in creating an inspiring, innovative and exciting curriculum that will enable our children to develop enquiring minds and be resilient and independent learners.


To be able to give Buxworth Primary School children the best chance of achieving and succeeding, we follow Project 25.


Project 25 was created by Buxworth children, staff, parents and Governors alongside the local community businesses.


We asked the initial question: “Where should our children want to be as individuals by the time they were 25 years of age?”


Along with the obvious basic skills, the list of individual qualities were formulated as:


  • Resilience
  • Respect
  • Friendship
  • Compassion
  • Trust
  • Thankfulness
  • Keeping Safe
  • Environmental awareness
  • Entrepreneurial spirit
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths)


We implemented a holistic, structured topic based approach to learning, which references the National Curriculum – creating an educational opportunity that is rich, ambitious, challenging and relevant for each individual child.


In order to develop our rich holistic topic based curriculum, we first asked the children which topics excited and interested them. The staff then divided the topics between the Key stages; looking for a "best fit" for each age group.

Next, we constructed our Long Term Plans for the Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Our Key Stage staff teams then turned directly to the National Curriculum to decide which objectives would ideally suit each topic area. We wanted to ensure complete and thorough coverage of all of the objectives across the 1 or 2 year cycle.

Here at Buxworth we encourage our children to take measured risks and to fully immerse themselves in the learning experience, which enables them to have the best possible chance of becoming well rounded, ambitious, educated, happy individuals, ready for their next step in the wider world.
