Stanstead Curriculum

Our curriculum, underpinned by current research, ensures our children will be well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the next stage of their journey. It will promote the demonstration of compassion, integrity and a pursuit of excellence in order for our children to reach their potential. Our enquiry-based approach takes children on a journey of memorable learning through rich and purposeful experiences, culminating in authentic outcomes which leave a legacy on the wider world.


Fluency in the core subjects, with reading at the heart, enables access to the full curriculum and is therefore integral to our approach. The curriculum is carefully designed through termly enquiry drivers, History, Geography and Science, ensuring coverageprogression and retention of transferrable knowledge and skills. It aims to provide inclusive and aspirational environments where learners thrive and build the cultural-capital they need to make aspirational choices about their own future, overcoming any barriers. In order to achieve this our curriculum is underpinned by the following principles:


  • Relevant and current
  • Empowers children
  • Promotes character and heart
  • Memorable
  • Provides Opportunities


Our mission is to create the best school in the universe meeting the needs of our wonderful community.  The implementation of the Flying High Partnership core elements and principles provides all children with the knowledge and skills they are entitled to learn. We aim to make every day count!
