Farsley Farfield Primary School


“Your curriculum offers a wide range of learning experiences for pupils and as a result is vibrant, rich and engaging.”  Ofsted 2018

Please note: we are currently undertaking a full curriculum review and new planning overviews will be published September 2022

At Farfield, we seek to deliver a fulfilling curriculum that children can enjoy and prepares them for their next stage of education and for life.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage, we follow children’s interests using a ‘Planning in the Moment’ approach.  As a result, engagement in learning in the Reception and Nursery class is outstanding.

Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 (Y1-6) follow the national curriculum. To bring the curriculum to life, we go on LOTS of school trips and we have some exceptional curriculum provision in areas such as PE, horticulture and cooking. Have a look at our brilliant class blogs for a flavour of our curriculum in action (accessed from top bar of website)!
