Our Curriculum

The school's vision is to provide an outstanding education and ensure that all pupils can achieve their greatest potential and live by life’s highest values.

At Mawgan-in-Pydar Primary School we aim to give our children the knowledge, skills and understanding to achieve to their full potential academically, socially and emotionally. This takes place in the context of a safe and nurturing school environment where each individual child is known and each individual child’s learning journey is unique to them. 

We strive to give our children the necessary skills to prepare them for life in modern British society. As a truly inclusive primary school, our curriculum reflects both the context of the school and the experiences of our children. 


Our curriculum drivers are Aspiration, Heritage and Wellbeing.

This enables our children to fulfil their potential and reach the highest of expectations that we have of them. We want all of our pupils to truly do the best they can in everything they do, to imagine possibilities and make them real.  


Our priority is to enable our children to succeed in the 21st  century by providing a rich, relevant and exciting curriculum that celebrates their heritage and in doing so ensures they are equipped to thrive in a complex and challenging world.
