In this section of the website you will learn all about the curriculum and the education we offer to all our children from Reception through to Year 6.
With the introduction of the new curriculum a number of years ago we have taken a lot of time to develop, refine and reflect on the type of curriculum we would like to offer all of our children. We considered and researched how we could develop a curriculum that would be relevant to our children as they approach a globalised society and how we could best equip them with the knowledge and skills to be the global citizens of tomorrow. Therefore, our Buckden School Curriculum is based around the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations in 2015 to be achieved by 2030. To enrich our curriculum and to enable our children to access their learning to its fullest we have incorporated a structured skills programme within our school curriculum.
