Our Approach to the Curriculum


At Comber Grove we are committed to providing our children with a high quality education through which every child reaches and exceeds their full potential. Our staff have high expectations of all children regarding their academic, social, emotional and spiritual development. 


We have worked strategically to provide a theme based creative curriculum where subjects beautifully overlap each term on the journey to a final half termly outcome.  We invite our parents to come see what our pupils have created.  Our latest outcomes have included sushi tasting, a recreation of the Home Front and performances of 'Oliver'.  Please see our Twitter feed for examples!


The Curriculum themes allow teachers to create lessons and activities around a single complex enquiry that leads to a high quality end outcome that is exhibited to an audience.  The lessons on the journey towards the outcome are designed and planned to cover all aspects of the national curriculum whilst at the same time providing a rich, real life learning experience. This way of learning allows our students to develop their own self-confidence and creativity, as well as develop skills that prepare them for a world outside of school.


Our values system is intertwined with our themes curriculum in the following ways:

  • Has an intriguing open-ended question or title e.g. We are Rock Detectives and Where does Water come from?'
  • Has a real-world, real-life outcome (Fairness)
  • Is tuned and tested by other pupils and teachers to enable continuous improvement (Resilience, Teamwork)
  • Requires students to produce multiple drafts of their work in line with adult and peer critique (Respect, Reflectiveness)
  • Culminates in a final exhibition to an authentic audience (Teamwork)


The Phonics Scheme that we use is 'Letters and Sounds'.
