Our School vision is rooted in biblical teaching - Living life in all its fullness. John 10:10.
It is embedded through our vision words:
Invite, Include, Imagine, Inspire
Our curriculum is deigned to be:
Our curriculum is driven by the need to prepare our children for lifelong learning. At St Peter’s, we offer a rich and vibrant curriculum which is ambitious for all learners. Through our curriculum, we develop the essential knowledge, skills and understanding which are the building blocks for later life. Our curriculum encompasses not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but goes beyond the experiences of the classroom to ensure that our children are exposed to the richest and most varied opportunities that we can provide. Our aim is to enrich every child's school experience by creating an environment where they are encouraged to succeed and be the best they can be. At St Peter’s, cultural capital prepares children with the essential knowledge and skills for their future. The exploration of new skills and experiences help to nurture resilience, curiosity and creativity.
Our RE curriculum is set by the LDBS (London Diocesan Board for Schools).
Our Curriculum is implemented with our Curriculum Intent at the heart of all we do at St Peter's Primary School.
Curriculum maps are produced for each year group ensuring clarity of coverage with a strong emphasis on progression of knowledge and skills. Each learning 'theme' has been carefully thought out in order to give children opportunities to enquire about different aspects of our world and to ensure the children make connections across a variety of subjects. Carefully selected enrichment opportunities are key to providing all pupils rich experiences to enhance their learning. It's design is broad and balanced and progressively builds on skills, knowledge and conceptual understanding year on year.
Our curriculum is fully inclusive and enables all children, including those with disabilities and SEN, to access the learning and achieve.
When planning each term, a journey is mapped out to ensure full coverage of the curriculum and skills. Children will be provided with a knowledge organiser for specific subjects to enable them to access the key vocabulary, important dates and any other key information they might need and these are available on our website to ensure parents know what we are teaching. Most subjects are taught discretely. Whilst cross-curricular links are made where appropriate, the school has chosen to teach subjects separately so that children gain an understanding from an early age of what constitutes each subject and so that knowledge and skills can be revisited and built upon.
