At Drapers Mills Primary Academy, our aim is to inspire young minds and shape futures using a stimulating curriculum to help develop aspirational, independent children. 

Our  curriculum is engaging, with a richness of language at the heart of everything we do.

Curriculum Intent:

  • To provide excellent outcomes for the future of our young people in the 21st Century and beyond.
  • To engage children in a relevant, meaningful and challenging curriculum that stimulates, allows and supports their learning, developing fluency and expertise.
  • To ensure that every child exceeds their full academic potential within school and reaches an emotional maturity that allows them to be fully involved in the local community.
  • To develop children's desires to be ambitious, use their initiative and have a strong sense of community.
  • To help children develop a rich understanding of language.
  • To support children in having positive mental health that enables them to be happy and to understand how to keep themselves and others safe.
  • To ensure learning experiences are carefully sequenced, building on knowledge and skills and providing an excellent vehicle for children to secure and apply basic core skills across a wide range of subjects.


Curriculum Implementation:

Across our curriculum, lessons are sequenced to provide the necessary progression of knowledge and skills. Resources to support the curriculum are well thought out, allowing teachers the opportunity to use their craft to design lessons and experiences which stimulate children’s critical thinking, reasoning, language development and grasp of basic skills. Teachers build in appropriate challenge and provide opportunities to revisit vital skills and knowledge regularly and embed their learning.


Curriculum Impact:

We track progress across the curriculum. Cold tasks and hot tasks enable pupils to clearly demonstrate and celebrate their progress and marking and feedback enables children to have a clear understanding of their next steps. All children deserve the taste of success, therefore children’s achievements are celebrated with parents and carers, as well as within the school.
