Carlisle Infant School


The introduction of the new primary curriculum in September 2014, has coincided with the federation of Carlisle Infant School and Hampton Hill Junior School. As part of the preparation for both of these, staff from the schools worked together to develop a curriculum which is dynamic, broad, balanced and innovative to ensure that the children enjoy a practical, fun, challenging learning experience that will prepare them for life in 21st Century Britain.

At the fundamental core of our curriculum is a belief that children need to learn core knowledge whilst developing the necessary skills to make them independent thinkers who will progress through secondary school and beyond. As such we have identified a skills progression that the children will follow in each subject area so as to ensure that they can attain this.

We also recognise that children need a curriculum that is wider than the national curriculum. To this end we have incorporated aspects of Enterprise, Sustainability, Globalisation – through our international links and Full International School Status and Local Community Responsibility as well as Religious Education and Relationship Education.

We are confident that through the dedication of all our staff we can ensure that all children receive a curriculum that is inspiring and appropriate to them as individuals.
