Dallas RoadCommunity Primary School




Our curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning  and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the  National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school  organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. 

It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential. 


The aims of our school curriculum are: 


• to enable all children to learn and develop their skills effectively 

• to promote a positive attitude towards learning, so that children enjoy coming to 
school, and acquire a solid basis for lifelong learning

• to enable children to be creative and to develop their own thinking skills 

• to teach children about their developing world, including how their environment and 
society have changed over time 

• to enable children to be positive citizens in society 

• to fulfill all the requirements of the National Curriculum 

• to teach children to have an awareness of their own spiritual development, and to 
understand right from wrong 

• to help children understand the importance of truth and fairness, so that they grow 
up committed to equal opportunities for all 

• to enable children to have respect for themselves and high self-esteem, and to be 
able to live and work co-operatively with others
