An Aspirational Curriculum:


We believe that each child at Rickleton has the potential to be successful in any area of curricular or extra-curricular life now and for their future. The curriculum they access must be the driver of this in offering them deep learning and inspirational experiences in a broad range of areas. Working out where their talents lie and the things they enjoy are a huge factor in this and we expect that all children give their all in all lessons.


In September 2023, we introduced our 'aspirational concepts' to support children and staff to understand the key skills and knowledge which they are building when studying a subject and where this could lead them in their future. We want our children to be driven by their future possibilities and see each lesson as a stepping stone towards this.

A Clear and Well planned Curriculum:


Subject leaders have worked hard to ensure that our curriculum fulfills not only national expectations but also the learning necessary to allow a child in Rickleton, in the North East of England, to be successful.


By carefully considering how knowledge and skills progress, ensuring that learning carefully builds on and consolidates prior knowledge, children have the best chance to feel confident and successful in their studies and to retain their learning as they move forward in their education.


The documents below show what we want children to achieve via the subject and how we plan to make this happen (commonly known as Intent, Implementation and Impact). They also show how topics and and skills are planned to give pupils a deep knowledge and hopefully a passion for the subject to support their future aspirations.

In Maths, throughout school, we enjoy using resources to work practically and develop our understanding of key concepts. We love to work together to share our thinking and justify our ideas.

Learning at Home

The websites below have been carefully selected to support children with basic skills and Maths rehearsal linked to the Rickleton curriculum. Why not use them to support your child to learn via games and challenges? A variety of online resources and manipulatives that can be used to support with homework. A variety of different Maths games for different ages linked to different topics and concepts. Support for Nursery and Reception children with numbers up to 20. Children each have their own individual login. Times Table practice for Children in Key Stage 2. Children each have their own individual login - contact school if you are not able to login at home. Early Years Maths resources and games KS1 Maths resources and games KS2 Maths resources and games



Parents may also find the documents below useful to support their knowledge of the new vocabulary used when teaching children and also how timestables support their learning.

Number Day

'In February, we celebrated Number Day. We all came to school dressed as numbers and took part in lots of different fun activities.'

Maths Escape Room

During Autumn term we took part in an escape room with Subject Revolution. We had to work as a team and solve all the Maths challenges.

Problem Solving Friday

Across school, we use Friday lessons as 'Problem Solving Friday'. Tackling problems in maths is a great way to build multi step approaches and resilience. It also allows children to learn how to apply their skills in different ways, often linked to real life situations.
