Our Curriculum Vision
'Only our best will do!'

At Albrighton Primary School, we believe in celebrating the whole child. We want to achieve:

  • Pupils inspired to fulfil their maximum potential academically, personally, socially and emotionally.
  • Happy confident individuals who believe in themselves and respect others.

To fulfil our vision, we are committed to providing a curriculum that Engages and enthuses our pupils; Develops a deeper understanding by acquiring new skills and knowledge; Innovates children to think creatively; and allows them to Express their learning and share their successes.

We have adopted the ‘Cornerstones Curriculum’, a creative and thematic approach which is delivered through a rich menu of exciting, and motivating learning projects designed to challenge and provoke imagination through contexts that have meaning to our pupils here at Albrighton.
