We are a Church of England school and work closely with the diocese. Please visit https://www.leeds.anglican.org/ for more information. We are part of the enhanced package and as such access a range of training and support.

We follow and work from the guidance from the Diocese 'Valuing All God’s Children Guidance for Church of England schools on challenging homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying'.

At Kirk Smeaton we are dedicated in developing an enjoyable and varied curriculum. Our Curriculum is the beating heart of our school day. Please see the curriculum areas for more information on each subject.

Our curriculum has a clear purpose, an intent.

Intent - What are we trying to achieve here with, and through, the curriculum?

We, staff and students, are trying to foster life-long learning behaviours at Kirk Smeaton CE Primary School through: independence, choice, collaboration and personal discovery.

Implementation - So, how are we going to deliver this? We have the National Curriculum, which we use as a starting point, and embellish and deepen further as a school but at the heart of this is children being exposed to quality experiences and lessons with a large element of choice and need for independent thinking. Pre-learning homework sets this up, often weeks ahead, and children are immersed into experiences with visits or off timetable days of discovery.

Impact - What difference is this curriculum making to our children? We place emphasis on all learners at the centre of curriculum and makes teachers think "What will the experience be for the children and how can we make the absolute most of each element?". We promote learners making both group and personal connections with the content due to having genuine freedom of expression. It is beginning to produce children who must and can, think for themselves, be resilient and face challenges with strategies to overcome and progress. It is where we can blend both practical skills and worldy knowledge in a meaningful structure.

Our teaching staff are committed to teaching children vital skills and necessary knowledge from the National Curriculum but allowing them to express and evidence their learning in formats and means that suit their individuality – playing to their individual strengths.

The culture of learning together is a promoted and exemplified by staff and we are proud to be growing children who are remembering how to question learning, to self organise and to take calculated risks within safe boundaries – to take themselves and their learning to new and exciting places.
