Our children leave our school more than ready for their secondary education. Our children have outstanding behaviour and excellent personal skills which we work hard to maintain. We are continuing our work in developing the very best broad and high quality curriculum we can, for all the children in school. As a school community, we aspire to be the best so that we can Learn, Grow and Inspire others in all that we do.


Our Mission statement is clear: We want children to grow up to develop to their fullest potential; to search for meaning and purpose in life within a caring Christian environment. To be educated to become whole. We believe that each one of us has the ability to achieve our highest potential, living and learning in the fullness of God.

Aim 1

To ensure that our children receive the very best education that we can provide by equipping ALL children with the necessary skills in reading, writing and mathematics to succeed.

Aim 2

That our children grow in knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live.

Aim 3

For our children to be healthy in body and in mind. We want our children to be strong, fit and active. To participate in sport and enjoy all it has to offer. To learn, through sport, how to win graciously, lose with courage and never give up. We want our children to be healthy; to have a healthy image of themselves as individuals, for our children to recognise the unique beauty in each and every individual as they were created by God. For our children to grow up to be resilient, responsible, confident and independent.

Aim 4

For our children to enjoy a strong practical curriculum. A curriculum where the children learn about how things work. A curriculum where they make, measure, cut, sew, fix, build, repair grow and evaluate. A curriculum where children will anticipate problems, imagine solutions, evaluate, adjust and problem solve as they go.

Aim 5

To inspire and nurture an appreciation of all forms of art within the children. To develop the children’s skills within music and art so that we open the door to the world of possibilities that music and art can offer children both now and later in their lives.

Curriculum Overviews

Here at Samlesbury, we have a broad and balanced curriculum which covers all aspects of the National Curriculum. In this section you can find the overviews for your child’s class. The overviews are a useful tool to help you support your child further in their learning at home if you would like to. 

Each junior class has a two year rolling program of topics for the foundation subjects. The infant class has a four year rolling program of topic titles.

Core Expectations

The core expectations cover they key skills/knowledge which your child will cover for each year group. If your child is secure in the learning for their academic year then they will widen their knowledge and understanding within the learning in that year group. In exceptional circumstances we will begin to cover the next year group’s objectives. Sometimes a child will need additional time to become secure in these core expectations, so as part of the usual differentiation which takes place in the classroom, the objectives from the year below may be revisited.
