Believe. Grow. Shine.


At Risby CEVC Primary School our curriculum reflects our desire to enable 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10) through providing an education in all its fullness. We deliver a broad, rich and deep curriculum, that takes our children on 'A Journey Around the World'. Each class is assigned a continent and the children's learning is linked to continent-specific contexts: providing the children with meaningful links that build cultural capital. Children start their learning journey as Explorers in Reception, then travel through Africa (Year 1); Australasia (Year 2); Asia (Year 3); Europe (Year 4); South America (Year 5) and North America (Year 6) - acquiring the skills, knowledge and attitudes they will need to lead a rich and fulfilling life.


We support, challenge and encourage our children to become lifelong learners and we do this, not by teaching to the tests, but by providing our children with an innovative and creative curriculum that builds a real love of learning within a global context and enables all of our children to succeed.


Our curriculum establishes firm foundations for learning by ensuring the children are secure in the basic skills they will need to use and apply on their Journey Around the World. It develops a core set of values that underpin the children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development and their sense of uniqueness and self-worth as individuals and it builds the children's thinking and questioning skills. When the children leave us at the end of Year 6, we are confident that they all carry with them: a suitcase full of memorable experiences, a deep body of knowledge, a love of learning and a passport to continued success in their studies.
