At East Crompton St George’s CE Primary school the curriculum is specifically tailored to meet the needs of our children - academically, spiritually, socially and in their knowledge of the World. We aim to offer our children the best educational experience possible in order to prepare them fully for the lives they are going to lead. All young people are individuals and our curriculum recognises this, striving to overcome any barriers to enable all individuals to achieve their full potential. We want our curriculum to be engaging and informing so that children are motivated, curious and inspired, enabling them to become life long learners. It should promote in children a self-belief, self-confidence and provide opportunities for children to develop resilience, skills and a breadth of knowledge across all subject areas.
Our curriculum extends beyond the formal requirement of the National Curriculum as we recognise that this is only part of what our children require. Of paramount importance within our curriculum are the values, skills and abilities we feel our children will require in order to take their place in the world as a global citizen. These will enable our children to be compassionate, resilient and driven leaders of the future, who hold strong Christian values, so that our young people develop imagination; creativity and insight; are able to reflect on their learning, their experiences and their lives; can find deeper meaning, a sense of purpose and inner peace.
Our curriculum is designed to provide rich and varied learning experiences to meet the needs, interests and aspirations of all learners, within and beyond the school day. It is underpinned by a clear whole school vision within our Mission Statement and a set of key principles.
- Breadth of Experience
- Resilient Learners
- Socially Responsible
- Vocabulary Rich
- Rich in Spiritual, moral and cultural learning
Topics have been planned to ensure spiralling knowledge and skills as pupils progress through the year groups. Each topic has a key driver subject which is humanities based. This is supported by a secondary driver of art or design and technology and additional subject links are made where appropriate. There are three topics each year to ensure that pupils experience depth and breadth within learning.
