In September 2014, the Government required that schools used a new National Curriculum. The aims of this curriculum are:
- The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
- The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications. The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
At St. Peter’s, we are committed to providing an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum to our children. You can find out more about our approach to the Curriculum in the document below:
If you would like to find out more about your child’s curriculum, please speak to your child’s class teacher, who will be happy to advise you. Alternatively, if your child has not yet started at St. Peter’s, please contact the office who will be able to advise you further.
