Curriculum Overview

The Babraham curriculum balances rigour and creativity, ensuring that the children have strong foundations, which enable them to approach their learning with confidence.  Children are encouraged to ask 'Big Questions' about the world around them and to gain a truly global outlook.  We encourage them to approach their learning with a sense of awe, wonder and enthusiasm, and to develop the ability to express opinions and to listen respectfully to others.
As a church school, the Fruit of the Spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control are woven through our curriculum.

At Babraham, we want to ensure that our curriculum is not only tailored to our pupils’ interests and needs, but also ensures they are ready for life in the wider world. Following a review of our curriculum, we introduced subject-based lessons, where pupils can articulate, and have a passion for, subject-based learning.


With support from DEMAT, we introduced the Primary Knowledge Curriculum (PKC) developed by the Knowledge Schools Trust.  This ensures that our provision for History, Geography, Science and Art is a ‘carefully sequenced, knowledge-rich curriculum which aims to inspire pupils, promote excellent outcomes for all and overcome inequality of opportunity.’
