Everybody, Everyday

Our Curriculum

 At Calder Primary School we teach an exciting, creative curriculum which is broad and balanced and follows the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum. Our aim is to enable our primary pupils to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens as a result of a stimulating education which nurtures and develops them, celebrates their achievements and challenges them to aim high. 


We support 'everybody, everyday' to become well equipped with the confidence and skills needed for a smooth transition to the next stage in their educational journey in Year 7, enabling them to become:

• Make good progress from their starting points in English and Mathematics
