At Bedford we aim to provide a fully inclusive, broad and balanced curriculum; providing equality of opportunity for every child in our care.
The Bedford Curriculum follows a ‘learning challenge’ approach, an approach that is underpinned by embedding thinking skills, greater learner involvement and high standards and progress in all areas of the curriculum. Our aim is for pupils to develop the skills to feel empowered in all lessons whether in maths as a mathematician, in art as an artists or science as a scientist – the development and skills progression will be evident through all subjects.

Curriculum Core Values
Our Bedford Curriculum is underpinned by our core values. These are the things that
all staff drive with relentless consistency from the moment your child joins Bedford Primary.
We want our curriculum to be a place where children are inspired to learn, reach their full potential and believe that they can be something and make a difference.
The skills that we want to see in all of our children in every lesson are listed below:
How will we nurture and develop these skills? The ‘Core Values’ that we guarantee in our teaching here at Bedford are detailed below. These values form the basis of our teaching and learning policy.
We also value the importance of and impact that first hand real life experiences have upon children’s education and have built a variety of visits and residential visits into the exciting new curriculum.
