Curriculum

Curriculum Statement 2019

 

Through our understanding of the Christian Faith, we recognise our responsibility to encourage all children to live life in all its fullness (John 10:10)

 

We believe that our children should:-

Live healthy lives

Be resilient

Be accepting of others and celebrate difference,

Be confident

Have self-belief

Have problem-solving skills

Be able to work collaboratively with others

Have a range of interests

Be aspirational

Be aware of their impact on the environment

Be independent

 

Intent

Our curriculum has been designed to ensure every child can ‘live life in all its fullness’.   We aim to do this by delivering a curriculum designed to meet the needs of our children.  We aim to deliver the knowledge, skills and understanding set out in the national curriculum, underpinned by our Christian values, through individual and collaborative learning experiences, a sense of responsibility and challenges both in and outside of the classroom.

 

We are a small school with a strong family ethos and can respond to the individual needs of every child and their interest, to promote a love of learning and an awareness of the local environment and global issues.

 

Our curriculum is intended to:

  • Develop our mind and body : What we learn
  • Develop our hearts and character: Who we are
  • Develop our actions and attitudes: How we live and learn
  • Develop our moral compass: How we can affect the world.

Implementation

Our well-planned curriculum will be delivered through quality teaching.  The children will be required to work independently and in groups.  They will be offered a variety of learning opportunities through which to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for the next steps in their education. 

 

Impact

Our children will have the skills, knowledge and attitudes to confidently and compassionately, make a success of the next stage in their education; they will learn more, remember more, enjoy more and develop more spiritually, socially and emotionally.
