St Peter's C of E Academy

Curriculum

 

St Peter’s Academy follows 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 with our core subjects, making links between subjects, where possible.

We believe that reading is a key element in successful learning and is at the core of our curriculum. We use 'Letters and Sounds' to teach phonics in foundation stage and KS1, carefully matching pupils’ reading books to their phonics learning.

We raise the profile of reading, maths, sports and outdoor learning by having special weeks which involve drama, visitors, exciting activities and special events.

We develop pupils’ skills systematically by using a progression of skills from Year 1 to 6. We plan pupil’s knowledge and word acquisition carefully, teaching vocabulary using the Word Aware approach.

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of the curriculum are taught within topics, RE and PSHE. The school celebrates diversity through music, story and discovering traditions from different faiths. The children are taught a clear moral code through RE and values teaching and older pupils have the opportunity to mentor younger children through our buddy scheme. The children learn about British values and discover the culture of our local area, Great Britain and the world.

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.
