Combe CE Primary School is committed to meeting the requirements of the primary National Curriculum. In addition, we want children to engage with and invest in their learning. We are developing our curriculum ethos based around ‘Curiosity, Creativity and  Challenge’ (CCC).


Each block of work is based around a ‘Big Question’, which is an inquiry question designed to spark children’s curiosity and engage children in in-depth thinking about the past, present and future of our planet.


We work hard to plan units of work which allow our pupils to learn creatively and to be able to apply their knowledge in unfamiliar contexts, showing fluency. Where possible we love to take our learning into the outdoor environment, either on our school grounds, our local Forest School site or further afield. Reading lies at the heart of our curriculum and we aim to support our learning with high quality books.


The curriculum is designed to challenge the children’s preconceptions, limits and comfort zones. We have high aspirations of all pupils, whatever their background or ability, and have designed our curriculum to challenge everyone.
