Our Curriculum Intent

The fundamental aim of our curriculum is for it to provide pupils with ‘A Place to BECOME’.  A place where children are given the opportunity to develop spiritually and gain an understanding of 'Life in all its fullness' (John, 10:10).  A place where children are nurtured to find their passion whether it is in art, writing, science, sport, music or design – that is the end goal.  A place where children are encouraged to develop a love of learning and a place where our pupils acquire the vital background knowledge, skills and experiences required to be informed and thoughtful members of the community. The learning line (below) is used in school to help children understand the learning process, encourage resilience and promote different personal attributes which can impact positively on both learning and character. We aim to make the experience of children at St Margaret’s Primary School memorable, fun and challenging. We want our children to develop good knowledge and skills across the curriculum and life skills which equip them well for the next stage of their education and in their personal development.

 

St Margaret’s C of E Primary School provides a broad, balanced curriculum which meets National Curriculum requirements and is differentiated to meet the needs and abilities of the children.  We plan our teaching and learning thoroughly to enable each child to reach for the highest level of personal achievement. A variety of teaching methods are used, including, whole class teaching, group work and individual teaching. Much of the curriculum is taught through carefully planned topics, which are subject-specific.  Children in Nursery and Reception  work towards Early Learning Goals.
