St. Peter's Curriculum

Intent

At St. Peter’s we inspire a passion for learning. Our continually evolving, rich curriculum endeavours to respond to the needs of our pupils, whilst reflecting the dynamic world in which we live. We strive to unlock the potential inside each and every unique individual through an immersive themed curriculum built upon the following key principles of:

Implementation

We strongly believe that our broad and balanced curriculum at St. Peter’s goes beyond the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. Not only do teachers plan and deliver a wide range of activities as part of classroom learning, but pupils also benefit from visits, visitors, leadership opportunities and a wide range of extra-curricular activities during and after school. All of these contribute to the learning, development and well-being of our children, and enrich life at St. Peter’s C.E. Primary School.

Our curriculum themes rotate on a two, three or four-year cycle, taking into consideration a number of factors including: the needs and previous experiences of a year group; key international events such as the Olympics; the local environment; and community. Our curriculum themes for 2019-20 are as follows:

To find out more about the curriculum theme specific to each class, click on the appropriate overview heading in the table above. At the beginning of each term, class teachers send out a curriculum letter which provides further details of the wonderful cross-curricular learning planned. Children are also given a ‘Homework Menu’ at this time from which they are able to choose activities to complete at home.  This enables parents and carers to clearly see the links between homework tasks and what is being covered in the class. The curriculum letters for each class can also be found in the table above.  Follow this link to find our about our curriculum themes for last academic year, 2018-19.

At the start of every academic year, parents and carers are also invited to a ‘Meet the Teacher Evening’. This is an opportunity for parents and carers to visit their child’s classroom, meet with class teachers and find out more about the curriculum, routines and expectations for the forthcoming year.

For more information about how parents and carers can be actively involved in their child’s learning, please visit the Home Learning page of our website. You can also find out about our approach to reading, phonics and spelling on separate pages of our website.
