National Curriculum

From September 2014, the new National Curriculum for state schools in England became statutory. On this page, you will find planning documents which detail the expectations of the new curriculum in English and Maths.


As a result of the changes, we have chosen to follow the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum which sets out essential coverage, learning objectives and standards which are required for all subjects. One of the primary reasons why we have chosen to adopt this curriculum is because it emphasises the importance of developing the depth of children’s learning. In essence, this means providing children with increased cognitive challenge, allowing them to apply the skills which they have learnt independently in a range of contexts rather than moving them onto the next skill when they have not truly mastered it.


At Seton School, we aim to challenge our children to become independent, well-rounded individuals who take ownership of their learning and become deep thinkers. Moreover, we want our children to be able to apply their knowledge and skill set in a range of contexts within school and real life and to thoroughly enjoy their learning.


More information about the Chris Quigley Curriculum can be found in the `Guide for Parents'.
