Our Curriculum

This section of our website is focused on our Curriculum and provides an overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 to 6. There are also sections on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development, our approach to British Values and International Learning at Benfieldside Primary School.

In line with statutory requirements, the new curriculum was launched in September 2014, coinciding with the introduction of the new National Curriculum in England.
