Our Curriculum

At Ernesettle Community School, we are proud to have an ambitious, knowledge-based curriculum which stimulates our children into independently minded, confident and kind citizens of the future, who aspire to ‘go out into the world and do well, but more importantly go out into the world and do good’. Our curriculum is engaging, innovative, built on first-hand experiences and celebrates all curriculum areas, helping to ensure that our children develop the knowledge and skills they need to excel, and become creative and curious citizens that are required to achieve academic excellence at secondary school and beyond.

Our curriculum has been designed to encompass knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live and the locality in which we live in the South West of England, and also the events that have shaped it in the past to make it what it is today. The topics have been coherently designed to build on one another with clear progression and links so that in subsequent year groups, they will be able to explore concepts deeper, applying their knowledge in different contexts. The curriculum at Ernesettle Community School is grounded in the strongest available evidence about how pupils learn and retain knowledge in the long term, focusing in particular on research from cognitive science.​
