At Brampton, we have designed a bespoke curriculum which helps us to achieve our overarching aim of:
Educating, Enriching and Empowering for the Future.
Built upon Development Matters, the National Curriculum, the Bexley Locally Agreed Syllabus for RE, and the DfE's Relationships, Sex and Health guidance, our curriculum is designed to ensure all pupils receive a broad and balanced education and acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to be successful now, in the next stage of their education and beyond.
Pupils study the following core and wider curriculum subjects:
Art & Design
Design & Technology
Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education (PSHE)
Physical Education (PE)
Religious Education (RE)
From Year 3 onwards, pupils study a Modern Foreign Language: Spanish (MFL).
To emphasis subject disciplines, in line with the National Curriculum, our curriculum is delivered as distinct subjects, with opportunities for inter-disciplinary learning as themed days or weeks planned into the school year. Subject-specific objectives are organised into coherently-planned units and these units are sequenced to ensure the knowledge, skills and vocabulary build cumulatively from Reception to Year 6. Curriculum overviews for each subject are available by clicking the links below.
Phonics, reading, writing and mathematics are at the centre of our curriculum. Taught daily as discrete subjects and allocated the most curriculum time, these core subjects take priority to ensure pupils leave Brampton as confident readers, writers and mathematicians, with the essential knowledge and skills needed for future education, employment and life. However, we highly value the wider curriculum and have designed our timetable to ensure pupils receive the full curriculum as well as a broad range of curriculum-enhancing experiences.
To complement our bespoke curriculum, we use carefully selected schemes of learning and resources from educational providers, including Read Write Inc. Phonics, White Rose Maths, Charanga Music, Language Angels Spanish and Val Sabin PE.
Our approach to delivering our curriculum in the classroom is informed by the Education Endowment Foundation's research and recommendations, particularly cognitive science approaches in the classroom and adaptive teaching. We have developed a set of 'Brampton Standards' for teaching and learning to ensure the quality is consistently excellent.
We are committed to ensure our curriculum is accessible to all pupils. More information can be found about how we support pupils with an SEND here:

Our curriculum is complemented by an enrichment programme of events, trips, and visits, which offer pupils inspiring first-hand experiences that further develop knowledge and skills acquired in class with their teacher. An overview of the trip programme can be viewed here:
