Our Curriculum

Our Approach to the Curriculum 

At Acton Primary Academy, we follow a creative, skills-based curriculum aimed at promoting independent learners of the future.  We do this through teaching skills and knowledge that relate to real life as much as possible whilst closely following the National Curriculum for English and Maths. The 'Our Classes' tab at the top of our site will take you to each of our classes where you can find out more about our current themes and topics
