The curriculum at Hawthorn Primary provides an outline of core knowledge which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupil’s knowledge, understanding and skills. This in turn provides pupils at Hawthorn Primary with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens.

Each term the teachers aim to develop exciting topics for their different year groups:

The Foundation Unit (Nursery & Reception)

Key Stage 1 (Y1 and Y2)

Lower Key stage 2 (Y3 and Y4)

Upper Key Stage 2 (Y5 and Y6)


Teachers have high expectations for all our pupils.  Targets are set which are deliberately ambitious.  Lessons are planned to ensure all children are engaged and there are no barriers to every child achieving.
