Curriculum

Bielefeld School's mission statement “Learning and Growing together” explains its main aim of ensuring that children make good educational progress, in a nurturing and happy environment. 

The Government released the New National Curriculum, which was implemented in September 2014. The New National Curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens.

At Bielefeld School, we aim to provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum, which will match the needs and abilities of all children.  We are committed to promoting equal opportunities throughout the school.

Forest Schools

The Finer Points Of Mud
We believe that children should be active and outside as part of their curriculum. 

Consequently, Bielefeld School has extensive and developing 'Forest Schools' site. All children experience the site, including the chickens!

Please check the School Prospectus for the Forest Schools' kit list.

Here are our Foundation Stage children experiencing the Forest Schools environment.








Children's University


At Bielefeld School, we also believe in Life Long Learning. In order to encourage our children to aspire to the very highest standards possible, the school participates in the Children's University (CU) scheme.
