Curriculum

 

St Peter’s Academy uses the National Curriculum 

https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which uses topics and themes to integrate the arts and humanities. In order to ensure progression and balance we use the Essentials curriculum from Chris Quigley to help with ideas, assessment and planning. We raise the profile of reading, maths and science by having special weeks which involve drama, visitors, exciting activities and events for the whole family.

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of the curriculum are taught within topics, RE and PSHE. The school celebrates diversity through music, drama, story and discovering traditions from different faiths. The children are taught a clear moral code through RE, circle time and PSHE and have the opportunity to mentor younger children and to become young sports officials. Social education is taught through PSHE and through the school council, children’s Parliament, links to the local council and Eco group. The children discover the culture of our local area, Great Britain and the world through story, dance, drama and history. The local Chippenham Museum are frequent visitors helping to bring History alive.

At St Peter’s Academy we value spiritual education and help the children to develop spiritually through RE activities, drama, music, story and reflection. Each class has a reflection corner where children can be quiet or share their thoughts.
