At Corringham, we strive to provide our pupils with an exciting, engaging and creative curriculum with “fun” at its heart. Our curriculum enables our children to move confidently onto the next stage in their educational journey providing both breadth and depth into stimulating and memorable learning experiences.  We seek to provide our children with inspirational opportunities in academic, sporting and arts areas, promoting excellence through enrichment.

Our curriculum is inclusive and enables learners to achieve their potential by giving every learner what they need to succeed, including giving priority to the social and emotional aspects of learning.
We seek to inspire our children to be lifelong learners; engaging and exploring the world around them - both within and beyond our school gates. We encourage our learners to develop new skills through a variety of interesting, meaningful and purposeful contexts which are relevant to the local, national and international contexts in which they live. We ensure that core skills are woven into and applied across other subjects and that our curriculum is progressive and built on prior learning. 

We aim for our children to be passionate about their learning which is underpinned by the school values of Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, Courage and Honesty.

Phonics & KS1 Reading Guidance

On entry in to Ortu Corringham Primary, we teach synthetic phonics as our primary reading strategy. The children receive discrete phonics lessons each day to learn the sounds (phonemes) they need and the letters that make them (graphemes). We follow the Letters and Sounds Scheme in order to do this effectively. The children have access to home reading books and library books.

British Values

At Ortu Corringham Primary School, we promote British Values through our core values of Courage, Compassion, Respect, Responsibility and Honesty.

British Values are taught via our PHSE lessons and intertwined throughout the curriculum.



Our children get very excited about their electronic devices. In order to ensure we work together to keep your children safe while online, The Parents' Guide to Technology from the UK Safer Internet Centre explains how to ensure the safe use of gaming devices, smartphones, tablets and more for children. I hope you find this very useful as we continue to work to keep our children safe in an online world
