Unique Curriculum


What makes our curriculum unique at Hunslet Carr Primary School?

 The children are at the heart of our curriculum.


We believe that every child should have the opportunity to develop and build their self-esteem and self-confidence, to believe that ‘impossible is nothing’. We encourage our children to have high expectations and strive for the best.  


Since 2014, we have been developing the curriculum that we provide for our children to meet the aims of the revised national curriculum.  Our main aim is to provide a curriculum which provides a wide range of opportunities and experiences and develops independent, caring, successful children who have positive attitudes to learning.


To view how our curriculum meets the requirements of the national curriculum requirements through the Chris Quigley objectives please click here.



Our curriculum is taught through topics, surrounding key curriculum drivers which meet these aims alongside fostering an enjoyment of reading and build independence through enterprise skills.

 In order to engage our pupils and enable our pupils to make purposeful links and connections within their learning, every topic begins with a motivational hook, and leads to a purposeful ending.
