Our Approach

The Brigg is a Read Write Inc school which means we follow the Ruth Miskin approach to reading and writing. Find out more at

We supplement this approach with Collins Big Cat, Oxford Reading tree and other books for reading at home.

We have a learning challenge approach to our curriculum. Each term, children investigate a topic based upon a key question. Our topics are rich and exciting, beginning with a wow moment and ending with an impressive end product, which is shared with other children or parents. Find out more about our curriculum here...

Each topic has a main subject focus, known as the topic driver, ensuring that all subjects are developed well over the year.

We incorporate exciting visits and visitors from outside of school including theatre groups, dancers, scientists and musicians to further enhance our topics and understanding of different cultures.

Teachers plan together using the Curriculum 2014 to ensure continuity and progression is maintained.

What OFSTED (December 2019) said about our curriculum at The Brigg:-

  • Exciting visits, and interesting visitors, add to the quality of the school's curriculum.
  • The curriculum provides the pupils with a good understanding of British Values...tolerance and respect.  Pupils learn about democracy in action.
