At Dinglewell Junior School we provide a rich and vibrant curriculum.

We see learning as a journey and the children as intrepid explorers, creating an ethos of excitement and a drive to learn.


We have identified 3 Strands that underpin everything we do: Discover, Inspire and Nurture. Our Curriculum also has 6 Golden Threads that weave through every subject and ensure that our pupils have access to a rich, diverse and relevant education:


Knowledge and Skills


Language and vocabulary




Our School Values: Our children are good citizens and have a sense of belonging.

Knowledge and skills-based: Our children are curious, knowledgeable and aspirational.

Progression led: Our children do more, know more and remember more.

Language and vocabulary rich: Our children are good communicators both orally and in writing, and we inspire a love of reading.

Experience rich: Our children thrive from a rich and vibrant curriculum

Resilience: Our pupils approach tasks with a positive mind set and are willing to problem solve.


Each year group focuses on a particular theme each term, starting with a key question, challenge or experience to set them on their way. At the end of term the line of enquiry is brought to a conclusion with a celebration of achievements, such as a display, a charitable event or a competition.

If a parent or carer should wish to know more details about our curriculum, please speak with your child's class teacher in the first instance.
