Moss Side Curriculum
We strive to provide our pupils with a vibrant and engaging school experience.
At Moss Side, the curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning, enrich the lives of our school community and encourage personal growth and development. We want our curriculum to be engaging and ambitious. The curriculum itself has its starting point in the National Curriculum 2014 but we believe that, in order for our pupils to gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life, we need to tailor this learning so that it is relevant to our school and the community we serve.
Fundamentally, the curriculum is built to deliver the school aims, ensuring that every child does as well as they can during their time at school. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises, both inside and outside the hours of the school day, in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’ (what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave).

If you wish to know anything else about the curriculum that you child studies, keep an eye out for information via the Friday newsletters and from your class teacher. Parents’ evenings are also a great opportunity to speak to your child’s class teacher but do not hesitate to get in touch beforehand if you have any questions. If you are a prospective parent, our small group tours allow the opportunity for our curriculum to be discussed in more detail. Please see the admissions information for further details.
*Due to the disruption to learning caused by COVID19, we aimed to complete as much of this curriculum as possible in 2020/21 but some areas were not fully covered following an acceptance of the need to be flexible until Easter 2021
