Purbrook Junior School offers an exciting curriculum that engages children with learning by developing their thinking skills and equipping them to become lifelong learners who are able to raise questions, partake in deep thinking and reflect on their learning. There is a strong emphasis put on ‘learning to learn’ alongside building resilient learners with a growth mindset.

Learning is fun, inspiring and ambitious at Purbrook Junior, personalised to challenge and meet the needs of all children. The children learn through themes, crafted into exciting and stimulating cross-curricular learning opportunities which meet all the statutory requirements of the 2014 KS2 National Curriculum. This is underpinned by key progressive skills milestones which identify the appropriate level and understanding expected of the children at their age range.

​Our vision of ‘Dream Big…’ and our three core values – RespectTeam and Achieve – underpin and drive all areas of our curriculum. We heavily encompass the British Values and SMSC.

The 2023-2024 Year Group Curriculum overviews can be found under the ‘Curriculum’ tab and then the appropriate year group page.

Our Curriculum Leaders are: 
Mr C Williams, Mrs E O’Hare, Mrs K Barnes and Miss L Yates

Note: The curriculum at Purbrook Junior School is always evolving to suit the needs of our children therefore overviews may be subject to change.
