Sir Thomas Abney Primary School

Curriculum Overview

We believe in topics which inspire, provoke interest and engage our children’s curiosity. We aim to create life-long creators, innovators and learners by exposing children to rich texts, meaningful experiences and teaching which builds on knowledge through the key stages.

We want our children to understand their place in the world and to challenge them to make sense of the world around them through clear, precise teaching and experiences to last a lifetime.

Our curriculum is designed around our school and our environment, we carefully select topics which reflect our diversity and our unique geographical position in Hackney. We make use of our surrounding areas with each class spending time on the regenerated wetlands an area teeming with biodiversity and vital for our health and well-being. Our children learn how these areas are inextricably linked through field trips, linked PSHE topics and discovering our past. We continue to build close ties with our local community and welcome visits from local services regularly.

Above all we aim to celebrate what makes and made us Hackney.
