Hutton Cranswick Community Primary School

Curriculum Intent 

Our curriculum at Hutton Cranswick C P School is inspired by and reflects our Vision and Aims.


Aspire, Believe, Succeed – Together We Achieve


As our vision states we will – aspire to be the best we can be, allowing everyone to achieve and experience success.

In order to achieve this we will:


H - Help grow good people who are inspired to make a difference to our community and world.

C - Care for and value ourselves and each other, ensuring everyone feels happy and has a smile on their face.

C - Celebrate positive and enthusiastic learners who persevere with challenges.

P - Provide a safe environment where we feel safe and act responsibly.

S - Secure and develop skills that will help us throughout life.


We nurture and develop learners for life by ensuring that our curriculum is broad and balanced, relevant, purposeful and above all prepares our children for the next stages of their learning journey and beyond. Our curriculum is highly aspirational and challenges all children to ‘Be the Best they can Be’. Building upon the objectives of the National Curriculum, East Riding RE syllabus and sport provisions, our curriculum fully equips the children with a breadth of knowledge, skills and experiences.


The rationale behind our curriculum was to offer our children a wide range of experiences to extend and enrich their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. We place considerable emphasis on active involvement, opportunities and enrichment which makes our curriculum unique: inspiring environments, school visits, school visitors, bespoke parental engagement and celebrations of success all combine to provide the best possible curriculum experience. We actively promote British values and embed SMSC across the curriculum to prepare our children for life in modern day Britain.  


Knowledge, skills, attitudes and values are developed at our school that equip our children with a toolkit of transferable skills to enable them to become lifelong learners and to function positively in their present and future lives.


In collaboration with all stakeholders we decided on four key concepts that underpin our curriculum. These key concepts are based on what is relevant to our children’s needs, the school context, community and opportunities available.

These four concepts are:

R – Responsibility (Do the children take ownership?)

E – Empathy (Are the children considerate of others and the world?)

A – Ambition for Life (Do the children have high aspirations?)

L – Love of Learning (Are children inspired?)
