At Moat Primary School, we believe that children positively learn by doing things in which they enjoy. With this in mind our aim is to make learning practical, stimulating and above all enjoyable. Using the National Curriculum, our pupils are taught through a carefully planned programme of structured teacher led and independent activities, which excite as well as challenge.
The subjects which are taught here at Moat Primary are split into Core and Foundation Subjects.
Please see the National Curriculum Framework and Subject Programmes of Study for more details of the national expectations for each year group:

Religious Education is a statutory requirement with daily assembly or act of worship. Although we are a community school the main religion is Christianity, although we do have children from a variety of religious backgrounds, which we respect and strive to provide equality for all. We follow the Gloucestershire Agreed Syllabus.
Parents may request non-participation in RE by writing to the Headteacher, although most of our parents are supportive of the children learning about other religions and cultures. This promotes the teaching and learning of difference and diversity in order for children know and understand the core values to live peacefully in Modern Britain. We have members of the local church present assemblies and provide independent after school clubs for some of the pupils.
We celebrate other religions, cultures and beliefs, as well as the United Nations “Rights of the Child” Convention, to teach the children the core British Values:
The School Council facilitates the pupil’s involvement to participate in a democracy.
The Behaviour Policy, School Rules, PSCHE curriculum and themes support the teaching and learning of the core British Values.
