At Gifford Primary School, our pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We value a broad and well-planned curriculum that promotes and instils a love of learning, challenges children to achieve high standards and develops their awareness of the wider world.
We use the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Framework as a starting point but have adopted a topic-based approach and personalised it to the pupils and families of Gifford and the local area, celebrating our wonderful rich culture and diversity. Our core values of strength, kindness and pride are threaded throughout our curriculum to ensure we develop good characters and responsible citizens.
We believe a strong understanding of basic skills will enable pupils to be successful in all aspects of their learning. English and Maths are key life skills and therefore at the centre of what we do.
