Please find below details regarding our school curriculum, if you require any further information then please contact the main school office.
The Curriculum at Evelyn Street Primary School gives children opportunities to learn, build on and develop new skills, concepts and knowledge. Children experience a wide range of subjects and activities that allow them to explore different topics and learning styles in detail. We use a two year rolling programme within each key stage within the school; you'll notice it is broken down into Year A and Year B. This approach allows us to ensure full coverage of all National Curriculum objectives and build on knowledge taught at previous stages.
Please find below our curriculum maps for this academic year which provide detail about the breadth of learning your child will experience. These include a long term map of the topics it is anticipated will be taught and more detailed overviews of the content of each topic.
As per government guidance, each year group follows the National Curriculum for English and Mathematics. The programmes of study can be accessed using the following links. If you would like more information regarding current topics, please speak to your child's class teacher.
Please note that this planning is an outline guide and is subject to change depending on the engagement and level of interest of the children, the progress they make and their achievement of the subject knowledge and skills. There is a degree of flexibility which ensures there is an aspect of personalised learning for all children. We will also be working extensively with Chester Zoo around one of their conservation objectives. Children will visit Chester Zoo but also work in partnership with other schools.
Children in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 use the 'Read Write Inc' phonic and reading scheme as part of their English lessons.
We welcome parental involvement to extend children’s learning outside of the classroom, but we advise you to check with your child’s class teacher on a regular basis to ensure you are up to date with your children’s current topic.
If you want to know more or have any questions then please feel free to discuss this with your child’s class teacher.

Each year we take part in the Primary Arts Network exhibition along with other schools in Warrington. To see our latest artwork, please visit the our dedicated PAN page here.
We are in the process of creating a subject narrative for each of our foundation subjects to show clear progressions in knowledge and vocabulary. These narratives are then broken down into medium term plans which outline the key learning that will take place. Some subjects then have a knowledge organiser. These will be used to support children's retention of key facts, knowledge and vocabulary. They will be used in school but also to support homework tasks.
These documents can be accessed via the links below - additional subjects will be added throughout the Autumn term.
