Our Curriculum

The Curriculum at Upland

At Upland school we are proud to deliver an exciting, enriching and well rounded curriculum. Our Teaching and Learning Handbook, brings together our expectations of how the Upland Curriculum should be delivered.

We ensure that when our pupils leave in year 6, they leave with the behaviours (our Personal Attributes) that they need to succeed in the world such as: resilience and determination, team work, responsibility, independence and confidence, creativity, pride, and personal safety and well-being as well as the appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum. Layering knowledge across subjects so that it becomes embedded and children can flourish, reach and exceed their potential academically, physically, emotionally and artistically.

Please find the whole school Curriculum Map below;

Knowledge and Skill Organisers

Using the whole school Curriculum Map as a base, we have developed Knowledge and Skill Organisers.  This ensures that our curriculum is progressive, giving our children the opportunity to build skills as they move through the school. In addition to this, meaningful links are made across the curriculum, where possible and appropriate, allowing children to be immersed in the knowledge of the topic.

These documents are being developed and are subject to change:

EYFS Curriculum 

Year 1 Knowledge and Skill Organiser

Year 2 Knowledge and Skill Organiser

Year 3 Knowledge and Skill Organiser

Year 4 Knowledge and Skill Organiser

Year 5 Knowledge and Skill Organiser

Year 6 Knowledge and Skill Organiser



These documents are evolving, currently PE, Music, MFL and RE are not represented within them. This is because these subjects are taught by specialist teachers or we follow the Bexley syllabus. They will be incorporated in the documents.


Evaluating the impact of the curriculum at Upland

Please refer to the Curriculum Team pages to the left to view the evaluation of each subject and how we intend to develop.



In consultation with parent representative from the Upland Parent Partnership, our homework policy has been rewritten. We value the opportunity to extend the layer of knowledge outside of school and, with this in mind, homework is themed around topics allowing children to develop their academic, physical, emotional and artistic skills.
