Curriculum Information


At Little Ealing, our aim is for our pupils to make progress and acquire skills and invaluable knowledge by moving through a carefully structured and mapped out curriculum of skills and essential knowledge that builds on what has been taught before. Our curriculum is well-sequenced and is underpinned by an understanding of how children learn. By attending to such considerations in our curriculum design, we are ensuring that the knowledge our pupils learn is robust.


The key aims of our curriculum are for pupils to:

  1. learn to read and write, as well as becoming mathematicians, preparing them for the next stage of their education and allowing them to be confident individuals;
  2. learn how to understand themselves and manage their emotions, understanding and tolerating others;
  3. understand and explain the world around them now and from the past;
  4. be active, compete in competitions and work with others in a team,
  5. be creative, practice, rehearse and perform with others;
  6. understand other cultures, beliefs and languages;
  7. learn about sustainable living, understanding global environmental issues


Pupils will have the opportunity to do this through:

  1. accessing high-quality English and mathematics lessons, reading a rich selection of books, and being immersed in rich vocabulary;
  2. PHSE, RE, Values-based education, MindUp and play;
  3. science, humanities, learning and interacting with members of their community;
  4. sports tournaments and other competitions across the curriculum;
  5. music, art and other opportunities to perform;
  6. French and RE lessons, humanities, cooking and PHSE lessons;



The curriculum is organised and delivered through:

  • A universal approach to supporting all children
  • discrete teaching of core subjects; English, mathematics and science;
  • a focus on emotional well-being through Values, Personal Social and Health Education, and MindUp;
  • a focus on developing key learner dispositions;
  • specialist teaching for French, Information Technology, Music and Physical Education;
  • enrichment opportunities through gardening, cooking, visitors, visits, residential trips and a termly menu of extra-curricular activities.



Learning in our curriculum subjects is carefully planned, sequenced and linked.


Our curriculum maps show what is being taught in our school and when.  They highlight our whole school sequence of learning, and the link staff will be making between the curriculum and our learner dispositions.  


Topic Lists highlight how topics are organised, the linked curriculum coverage and what children need to be able to do by the end of the topic.


Progression frameworks outline what the curriculum objectives are for each year group in each curriculum area, how the key ideas and skills develop in each year, how they build on earlier learning and what these would look like for children working at different levels within the framework, providing essential next steps in their learning.


Unit Overviews provide information about what will be covered in a unit, how this information links to the National Curriculum, how it links with related learning from other topics and how it builds on previous learning in that topic or subject, and the knowledge, skills, vocabulary and concepts that pupils will acquire.


Knowledge organisers are a simple tool that provide clarity for both the teachers and children.  They summarise the most vital, useful and powerful knowledge on a single A4 sheet.  They provide children with an overview of the essential concepts that children will have learnt by the end of the topic.  They include the knowledge, vocabulary that children should understand and use, cross-curricular links and the assessment opportunities.  They also act as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.
