Our curriculum is designed with our school vision at its heart: “Through God’s love, we are the rich soil where roots grow and seeds flourish.” and encompasses our school values of Wisdom, Friendship, Respect, Responsibility and Creativity.
The four pillars of our whole school curriculum are:
Develop a love of reading
Reading is at the core of everything we do as a school. From making a strong start in Phonics in the Early Years to developing reading for pleasure in KS2, we aim to ensure that every child leaves us as a confident, engaged and fluent reader. Please follow this link to our Reading/Phonics Curriculum page.
Know more, do more and remember more
Our knowledge rich and progressive curriculum is coherently planned to ensure that children’s knowledge and skills build each year in both the core and foundation subjects. Our creative approach to planning topics means children are excited by what they are learning about, whilst our curriculum concepts help children to deepen their understanding and make links between their learning. Metacognitive approaches ensure that learning sticks.
Go places, meet people and make things happen
Character development opportunities and enrichment activities give all children chance to achieve and experience success. Our Staindrop Bucket List and involvement in projects such as the ABYYT Young Leader Award ensure that children leave us with a wealth of experiences and high aspirations.
Happy, healthy global citizens
Through our distinctly Christian identity, Collective Worship, PSHE and RSE curriculums, children have opportunities for prayer, reflection and gain a deep understanding of British Values. Through the School Council and Worship Committees, our children recognise the value of charity work, and are exposed to wider global issues and how they can make a difference. We support the mental health and well being of our school community and ensure all are valued.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) within the Curriculum
