Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum

At Friarage our intention is to provide an exciting curriculum that provides all pupils from the school's diverse demographic with the necessary skills and knowledge to progress and succeed, ready for the next phase of their education journey and beyond

As a result of the implementation of our curriculum, Friarage pupils will:

  •  Experience a progression of knowledge and skills that will be revisited in order to embed learning and enable them to be able to share stories and make memories
  • Be confident readers who enjoy a range of literature
  •  Become knowledge and skills rich in all areas of the taught curriculum
  •  Become independent learners who develop the resilience needed to play a full part in society
  •  Develop high levels of confidence and self-esteem in a variety of situations within and beyond the school
  •  Be able to be healthy in body and mind
  •  Be team players who apply British values and understand the differences and similarities of others within society
  •  Learn that they can be successful
  •  Feel included and know that they have a voice

The Friarage Curriculum includes all the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum, including the North Yorkshire scheme of work for RE.  


Over a child’s journey through school, pupils will also access key opportunities to enhance their life experiences and develop their cultural capital.  These opportunities are called the Friarage 15:

Extra Curricular Offer

Friarage School offers a variety of clubs throughout the academic year which are available for children in KS1 and KS2 to enjoy. As a school we work hard to ensure children are provided with a balanced offer which includes clubs that can be categorised into four key groups: 
1.School Community- e.g., Choir and Gardening Club
2.Sports- Football, e.g., Cricket and Netball
3.Academic- e.g., Maths and Science Club
4.The Arts- e.g., Drama, Art and Music Club
In addition to clubs led by members of staff we work alongside outside providers to enhance the after-school club offer for example 'Hidden Horizons', Mini Medics and the County Cricket Club.
Pupil voice plays a key role in the clubs that are offered ensuring that more children have the opportunity and the desire to extend and broaden their learning. 

Children's University

Friarage School is proud to be a Children's University school. The programme provides children with the opportunity to take learning outside of the classroom and gives them recognition for their efforts out of school. Children earn 'learning hours' for completing a variety of tasks outside school such as swimming lessons or writing a film review. The programme encourages children to earn points in four categories: School Community, Academic, The Arts and Sports. 
All children who take part in the programme are provided with the relevant materials to enable them to access the programme at home.  Parents and carers are signposted to free out of school activities and events that their child can attend and earn learning hours for every half term.
All children in Upper Key Stage Two are encouraged to sign up to the programme. In the event children are not able to take part in the 'Children's University' programme, Friarage School offers an in-school equivalent. Both programmes offer children a chance to further their knowledge and understanding of areas of interest, experience new clubs and activities.

Pupil Voice June 2022

‘Children's University has helped me get outside more because every weekend I used to stay inside but now I go to the beach more.’ 

‘Getting the rewards for the work really makes me feel proud of myself and it feels like I have really worked hard to have achieved that milestone.’ 

‘I enjoy having something to do at evening, it has made me come outside more and be more adventurous outdoors and indoors. I also love the fact that we can do fun activities in the holidays’ 

‘Without Children's University, I wouldn't have gone to any clubs. But, joining it has made me realise that I should try new things and I joined Drama Club which was really fun.’
