Our curriculum is based around the National Curriculum 2014.


The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

Please use the links below to find out what our children will be taught.


The curriculum provided by Goathland Primary School is engaging, high quality, inclusive and aspirational and is firmly underpinned by our Vision Statement.  We believe our children are well supported in their learning so that they become ”confident, ambitious and ready for the world.”

Our school is a member of the Esk Valley Alliance and our staff work across 8 Esk Valley Core Schools, with each teacher taking responsibility for planning a subject.  We have a shared curriculum plan over a four year rolling programme which enables us to share good practice, resources, trips and outings and provides an excellent broad and balanced education for our children.  Our curriculum recognises the wealth of opportunities provided by our local area as well as recognising those areas that are challenging due to our locality.

We follow the National Curriculum.  You can find out more about the National Curriculum on the Government Website.

Due to our mixed age classes we have a four year rolling curriculum plan. Below you can find our long term planning and curriculum overview information for all subjects.
