One of the keys to delivering a high standard of education to all students is a well-rounded curriculum. At Shaw CofE Primary School, we follow a comprehensive curriculum that incorporates an array of subjects. Within each subject, a variety of topics are covered, ensuring that each child gains an in-depth understanding of the subject.
Each lesson is conducted by one of our exceptional teachers, and a wide range of learning resources are used to create an exciting learning experience. We understand that children learn best when they are engaged, and we make every effort to design lessons that capture their imagination.
Listed below is a collection of links to websites that offer endless hours of fun and learning as well as important safety lessons.
