Welcome to Steeton Primary School.

Creative Curriculum

The Creative Curriculum at Steeton Primary School encompasses all core and foundation subjects and enables us to provide a high standard of teaching and learning.

We aim to foster a life-long love of learning, through adopting a highly practical, skills based cross-curricular approach. Our Creative Curriculum aims to deliver an engaging, exciting and relevant twenty-first century education that will equip our children with the skills required to be independent and responsible citizens.

Please contact school if you require any information about the Curriculum we follow.
