Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 currently use the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum which follows the National Curriculum. Children in the early years follow the Early Years Curriculum and work towards the Early Learning Goals. 

The National Curriculum (2014) is in place for all the children and Cowlersley Primary School is working on tailoring this curriculum to the skills based, experiential curriculum that we use. We deliver the statutory content of the National Curriculum and strive to plan a thematic approach to learning.


Many of our topics change regularly to engage and stimulate the children. A hands-on, skills based approach is followed to ensure that the children make progression with their learning as they move through the school.


Our work is designed to meet the needs or opportunities presented by  

  • Our children 

  • Our ethos

  • Our environment
