September 2014 the updated National Curriculum became statutory. As a school we ensure that we teach all the statutory requirements.


Halfpenny Lane promotes British Values throughout the whole school day as well as in Curriculum teaching. 


Our approach is to teach a skills based ‘Creative Curriculum’ as we believe in involving our children in their learning and equipping them with the skills they will need to achieve economic well-being when they leave education. Reading, writing and maths are seeded through our Creative Curriculum and we link different subjects together to make learning purposeful.  Our Curriculum is based on key drivers that are personal to our school and reflect the social and educational needs of our local area. Our key drivers are the focus of every theme of work which is developed through school.
