Curriculum Statement (Curriculum Updated Autumn term 2020)
St. George’s C.E. Primary School aims to provide an exciting curriculum, which is relevant to our children, but which also makes them want to find out more and enriches their lives, both now and in the future. Our curriculum complies with our duties in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. It is accessible to all.
We celebrate all our abilities and our differences.
The core values of our ‘COURAGE’ vision are what we want the children to have experienced during their journey through St. George’s:
The principles which underpin our curriculum are:
- Inspire enjoyment, achievement and aspiration through engaging, exciting and stimulating activities and environments;
- Develop and challenge every child to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to succeed as learners throughout their life;
- Ensure equal rights of access to each area of the curriculum, irrespective of ability, gender and ethnic or cultural backgrounds;
- Instill the values of democracy, liberty, respect and tolerance.
In light of the new OFSTED framework, where a higher emphasis is placed upon the wider curriculum, we are continuing to develop and strengthen our curriculum to ensure all children have relevant experiences which will equip them for life in their local and global communities.
From the very beginning of their school life, St. George’s works closely with our families, our local schools’ cluster and the local community to provide links and experience in and around school. Working alongside other organisations brings meaning and opportunities to the children in both school and the wider world.
Of course we want to develop skills, knowledge and understanding, but we also feel it is vitally important to engender children’s interest in the world around them. By providing new opportunities and exciting experiences we hope to give the children aspirations for their future and to prepare them for life outside school.
