British Values

From September 2014, schools within England have had a duty to promote British Values.  The Department for Education (DfE) define them as:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

Please click on the following link to see how we promote British Values at Hamilton Primary School.

English and Maths Curriculum

The school uses a number of resources and available schemes to plan learning in English and Maths.  These are used to set learning that best suits each class and individual pupils.  Currently the school uses White Rose Maths materials as its main scheme of work for maths supplemented by other resources in school.  In English the school uses a number of different materials to support planning and teaching.

Foundation Subjects

Foundation Subjects are taught through topics.  Each topic has a main focus; such as Science, Geography or History.  Some topics are taught as whole school units whilst others are taught as year group topics.  Where possible, links are made to the English and Maths that is being taught in each class.  The school uses visitors and trips to further extend pupils experiences.


The school's Half Termly Curriculum Plans for each year group are shown below.  They will be updated at the start of each half term.  If you have any questions about what your child is learning, please make an appointment to see your child's class teacher.
