Curriculum Overview

Our approach to the curriculum is to provide the highest quality provision, utilising the skills of all our staff, to inspire all our pupils to achieve their full potential.


At our school, literacy skills are at the heart of everything we do. Children are encouraged to discover the value of strong communication and the importance of Reading and Writing in all aspects of their futures.


In our school, children are taught in an environment which promotes the varied and diverse applications of Mathematics.


At New Wave Schools we use the IPC because it is a curriculum that gets children excited about learning, provides a strong international dimension and relates to the learning needs of every child.


We have a clear and simple vision; the children should be confident users of technology, independent digital learners, e-safe, inspired and innovative.


Musical education at Shacklewell aspires to provide children the opportunity to learn, experience and perform using a wide range of musical instruments.


At Shacklewell Primary School, our aim is to embed Spanish in our local community for the pupils to understand the purpose of learning a Modern Foreign Language.

In our school, we believe that Religious Education helps to inform our values, which are reflected in what we do and say.
