School Curriculum

Ecton Village Primary Academy is a small rural school consisting of four mixed-age classes located in the beautiful village of Ecton, between Northampton and Wellingborough. We are proud of our family atmosphere which permeates all that we do in our school.  We recognise that every child is unique, and value each one as an individual, providing them with a secure and friendly learning environment in which they are nurtured and encouraged to develop their own skills and talents.

Curriculum rationale

  • The curriculum at Ecton Village Primary Academy is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all pupils and gives them the skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for their future lives.
  • It ensures that academic success, creativity and problem solving, responsibility and resilience, as well as physical development, well-being and mental health are key elements that support the development of the whole child and promote a positive attitude to learning.
  • The curriculum celebrates diversity and supports the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Curriculum Statement

At Ecton Village Primary Academy we offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced and which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through each Key Stage. The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and other experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school. The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education.

Our schemes of work reflect the content and challenge of the National Curriculum. We are proud to have a knowledge-based curriculum which links to high quality fiction and non-fiction texts and stimulates our children into asking searching questions, shapes their learning and enables them to develop into independent thinkers and learners. Our curriculum is engaging, exciting and innovative, helping to ensure that our children develop the knowledge and skills they need to excel, and become creative and curious citizens. Our curriculum has been designed to encompass knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live, and also the events that have shaped it in the past to make it what it is today.

The curriculum is taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners. Our curriculum is exciting and will inspire children to nurture a passion for learning. The higher attaining pupils are challenged further in their learning and children who find aspects of their learning more difficult are appropriately supported so that they too are enabled to experience success. The curriculum is underpinned by the school’s Core Values (Independence, Resilience, Ambition, Co-operation and Honesty) and these are taught on their own and through other areas of the curriculum, including assemblies. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of the core values of our society are woven through the curriculum. 

Developing independence and motivation as learners and a sense of responsibility as future citizens is at the heart of all our teaching and learning.
