St Peter’s CE Primary School Curriculum
The staff and governors of St Peter’s have a very clear vision of inclusive education, in which every child is encouraged to succeed and does so thanks to our broad, balanced and enriching curriculum; this is based upon strongly held Christian values and prepares children for life in modern Britain.
We are passionate in our belief that the curriculum underpins all of our provision as a school, and that through it the children should receive outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural guidance and, as a result, make excellent progress socially and academically, equipping them to become the good citizens and leaders of tomorrow. We strive to ensure that there is an extensive range of free-to-all extra-curricular activities to supplement this.
The 2014 National Curriculum differs from previous versions in a number of ways, mainly in that it encourages a deeper learning – mastery – of fewer objectives, and in the way that it encourages children to be taught a knowledge of key facts as well as the skills which will equip them for the future workplace.
Our job as a staff and governing body has been to tailor this curriculum to suit the needs of the learners at St Peter’s. Following consultation with children and parents, and joint research with local primary schools, we have created a curriculum which harnesses all of the statutory objectives and fits them into schemes of work and topics which are relevant and stimulating to children in the Salford locality.
