Curriculum Subjects

Foundation Stage





In mathematics, our aim at Hampton is to create confident mathematicians who can apply their fluency in mathematics, their ability to reason mathematically and solve problems to support their economic future and problem solving in life.  


We aim for the children to believe that they are all successful mathematicians by cultivating enthusiasm by enhancing their knowledge and understanding through practical experiences and investigative work; stimulating a curiosity for the beauty of mathematics. We follow a spiral curriculum to ensure our children revisit key skills and themes several times during the year, so that they can make deep connections between different areas of the curriculum and use prior knowledge on new concepts. Our aspirational mathematics curriculum is considerate of the unique starting points of all our children and we provide opportunities for everyone to enjoy real-life and meaningful mathematical experiences. 


As a school, we follow White Rose Maths. Our long term aim is to produce an ambitious, connected curriculum accessible to all pupils in school right through from EYFS to the end of year 6. It provides a structured, coherent curriculum to develop pupils into mathematical thinkers which we use and adapt to meet the needs of the children at Hampton.  



At Hampton Primary school children are encouraged to think critically and enquire about the world that we live in. We aspire for children to be curious and to challenge misconceptions by experiencing the joy of science.


Science plays an important part of our sense of enquiry and the aim of our curriculum is to ensure pupils develop a core knowledge of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. We support children to adopt a broad range of skills when working scientifically and beyond, showing resilience through investigate learning. 


Regardless of background, all children are provided with the opportunity to make associations between their science learning and their lives outside the classroom, reflecting on change and the impact it has. To ensure our children make progress, they are exposed to stimulating and practical investigations and the opportunity to engage in exciting observations. Comparing results and differences and discussing their findings with others encourages kindness; together they can achieve by learning from each other. Studying science allows children to appreciate how new knowledge and skills can be fundamental to solving arising global challenges, encouraging them to make a different and have aspirations


At Hampton Primary School we want children to aspire to be Masters of Technology. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in children’s lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this. We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology (especially social media) to model positive use and kindness. We recognise that the best prevention for a lot of issues we currently see with technology/social media is through education. Building knowledge in this subject will allow children to effectively demonstrate their learning through creative use of technology. 


We recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning, in all subject areas, in creative ways.  We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our children and exposing them to these provides opportunities for them reflect to apply their knowledge in different ways, which will in turn help them to become skillful computer scientists.


We want our children to be fluent with a range of tools, be resilient, enabling them to be independent and confident in choosing the best tool to fulfil tasks and challenges they face.


At Hampton Primary School, we believe that by becoming historians, children will develop a coherent knowledge and understanding of local, British and world history.  We use the National Curriculum and Kapow to structure our learning.  Following enquiry-based learning, we encourage the children be curious about the past - to form and answer questions about their learning, gain knowledge, investigate evidence, compare and contrast periods of history and understand change.


Children will learn how people in the past have changed the societies in which they have lived, our society today and how it will continue to change in the future. At Hampton, we have identified a set of key historical concepts or ‘golden threads’, that the children will repeatedly revisit throughout their time at Hampton. Our golden threads are civilisation (comparison), impact of change (invasion, trade and achievements), culture (power, beliefs and religion) and chronology. All these threads support our school values aspiration, resilience, reflection and kindness, which are embedded within our history curriculum.  


At Hampton Primary School, we use Kapow as a Geography scheme of work which aims to inspire pupils to become curious and explorative thinkers with a diverse knowledge of the world; in other words, to think like a geographer.


We want pupils to develop the confidence to be resilient and reflective, to question and observe places, measure and record necessary data in various ways, and analyse and present their findings. Through the progressive learning sequences, we aim to build an awareness of how Geography shapes our lives at multiple scales and over time. We hope to encourage pupils to become resourceful, active citizens who will have the skills to contribute to and improve the world around them. To be kind towards the world we live in and aspire to make a difference in our ever changing world. 


Our Geography curriculum has a strong focus on developing both geographical skills and knowledge. It encourages children to become critical thinkers, with the ability to ask perceptive questions and explain and analyse evidence. It helps children to develop fieldwork skills across each year group as well as giving them a deeper understanding and knowledge of their locality and how it differs from other areas of the world.



Art and Design

The AccessArt Primary Art Curriculum at Hampton Primary School gives children the opportunity to be immersed in a range of media and techniques, including drawing, painting, printmaking, collage and making. The children study traditional and contemporary artists, designers and crafts people from around the world as they progress along each pathway. We take a journey-based approach, enabling creative risk taking, sharing of ideas and revisiting of experiences, focusing on children’s creative growth. The children becoming increasingly independent in the choices they make during each pathway, underpinned by the creative use of their sketchbooks that they work on and form during their time at Hampton on School.  


Our art curriculum is aligned to our Hampton Values. During our art projects, we encourage children to aspire to reach their full potential, whilst creating unique pieces of 2D and 3D art. The children will show kindness to themselves and others as they reflect upon and critique their work during the process and upon completion of their final pieces.  They will be resilient, adapting and evaluating their work throughout, culminating in them achieving their goals and beyond.   



Design Technology

At Hampton Primary School, we follow the Kapow Design Technology curriculum. Our aim is to provide a rich and engaging learning experience that equips children with a range of knowledge and skills to become creative problem solvers. We aim to develop their ability to design, make, and evaluate products, fostering a passion for innovation and the confidence to apply their learning in real-world contexts.


We aim to ensure that all children develop a deep understanding of technology and its impact on society, preparing them for the challenges of the rapidly evolving technological landscape. 


We want our children to use creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We intend for all children to acquire appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum.




At Hampton Primary school music is embedded into school life to help children develop a love of music.  Music is all around us and connects all our lives through people and places in our ever-changing world. In our school, music brings our community together through the shared endeavour of whole school singing, ensemble playing, experimenting with the creative process and, through the love of listening to friends and fellow pupils, performing.


Music plays an essential part in our sense of identity, and we provide every child, the chance to create, play, perform and enjoy music – both within the classroom and to an audience. Children experience music every day through our curriculum, outside provisions and assemblies.  This allows children to express their creativity through music which boosts their self-confidence and sense of achievement.  Children are given opportunities to explore how music is created and introduced to musical vocabulary. 


Our Hampton values are embedded throughout our music curriculum where children learn to be aspirational, resilient, reflective and kind through challenge, risk taking,  and supporting each other.  

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) & Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE)

At Hampton Primary School we follow Jigsaw to teach Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Sex and Relationships Education (SRE). This PSHE curriculum provides a whole-school approach which embodies a positive philosophy and creative teaching and learning activities to nurture children’s development as compassionate and well-rounded human beings as well as building their capacity to learn.

Our two main curriculum aims for all children are to build their capacity for learning and to equip them for life. We incorporate PSHE into our everyday school life where a lot of our lessons cover many aspects of these key life skills implicitly. 


Wellbeing and good mental health are of paramount importance and our pupils are encouraged to share their wellbeing at regular points throughout the week. We aim to develop a climate where pupils learn to understand and monitor their own feelings as well as feel empowered to seek support should they need it. In addition to looking after their mental health, children are also taught to develop a positive growth mind-set through specific teaching in PSHE lessons, as well as across the wider curriculum, where skills such as resilience, perseverance and independence are celebrated. Our four schools values, aspiration, resilience, reflection and kindness are also embedded within the our PSHE curriculum.


In our school we are an inclusive community where all children (and adults) aim high, work to the best of their ability and develop a strong sense of self-confidence and positive wellbeing. As a school it is also imperative to support the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We believe that all stakeholders in our school uphold positive values, morals and beliefs which are in line with the core British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. A strong sense of community and the wider-world is central to our ethos and this equips children with the knowledge, skills and strategies to live healthy, happy, full, safe and responsible lives.

Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

At Hampton Primary School, we are excited to offer our students a fun, rich and engaging language learning experience through the Primary Languages Network scheme of learning. This exciting and innovative program is designed to inspire a love of languages from an early age and provide our students with valuable and important communication skills. We encourage children to develop a passion for languages through a range of speaking, listening, writing and reading activities which provides them with a good understanding of French and lay the foundations for them to become lifelong language learners.


Learning a foreign language opens up a world of different opportunities. It develops thinking skills and encourages empathy and cultural awareness as well as nurtures a generation of confident and culturally aware children. 


Our Hampton values are embedded throughout our French curriculum where children learn to be aspirational, resilient, reflective and kind. 

Religious Education 

At Hampton Primary School, we believe that it is important for all our pupils to learn from and about religion, so that they can understand the world around them. The aim of Religious Education in our school is to help children to acquire and develop knowledge and understanding of different religions and to appreciate the way that religious beliefs shape lives and behaviour, develop the ability to make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues and enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.


Religious Education is taught using the Kapow Religion and Worldviews curriculum. It is delivered throughout the school in such a way as to reflect the overall aims, values, and philosophy of the school. 

It plays an important role, along with all other curriculum areas, particularly PSHE, in promoting social awareness and understanding in our children. We encourage our pupils to ask questions about the world and to reflect on their own beliefs, values (Aspiration, Resilience, Reflection and Kindness) and experiences. We include and promote British values, ensuring that children are aware of their rights and responsibilities as UK citizens.

Physical Education 

Our Physical Education (PE) curriculum at Hampton Primary School is designed to ensure that Physical Education is a subject consistently embedded across all year groups. Through a progressive curriculum, children build on their existing knowledge and skills in PE, enabling them to develop their physical abilities and a lifelong love for being active.


By providing a structured framework, our curriculum aims to help children remember the intended knowledge and skills over time. We believe that regular physical activity is crucial for the overall well-being of our students, and our curriculum is designed to instill the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle.  


Through a variety of activities and sports, our PE curriculum encourages teamwork, resilience, and perseverance. We are dedicated to providing a high-quality PE education that not only develops physical skills but also fosters personal growth and enhances mental well-being. Competitions ran throughout the year also encourage our children to be resilient and reflective, being kind to each other while working as a team to encourage and achieve.
