At All Saints CE (VC) Primary School, we aim to make every day full of learning and fun, with opportunities to find out about the world, ourselves and each other.
We want our curriculum to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society. There is a high focus on developing children’s moral, spiritual, social and cultural understanding alongside physical development, well-being and mental health. As a church school, we place an emphasis on understanding the Christian faith, as well as learning about and from other faiths and cultures The school provides a highly inclusive environment where learners enjoy their education and pupils at all levels are helped to achieve their potential. As a small school with mixed age classes we are determined to ensure that our wide range of age and abilities are all challenged to make the most of their time at All Saints. We place an emphasis on the development of children as life-long learners, by providing opportunities for them to develop their knowledge and skills progressively throughout the curriculum.
The school’s curriculum is designed to ensure coverage and progress. We aim to provide pupils with memorable experiences, in addition to diverse and rich opportunities from which children can learn and develop a range of transferable skills. We always start with finding out what the pupils already know about a topic, and what they want they want to find out. This often starts with a visit to a place of interest of a visitor to the school to inspire the children and fire up their interest. We also want our curriculum to help raise our pupils’ aspirations, engender a sense of personal pride in achievement, and provide a purpose and relevance for learning.
Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum. Our pupils are offered a wide range of experiences to extend their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. Skills, attitudes and values are developed to prepare the children for the next stage of learning (Key Stage 1 and 2 ready and Secondary ready), and enable them to be successful in the community. We believe that effective learning takes place when there is considerable emphasis on active involvement, opportunities to talk both imaginatively, expressively and to explain and clarify thinking. We aim to make meaningful connections across subjects. The school expects everyone to develop and show a sense of responsibility and self-discipline whether alone, together, at work or at play, and to support policies on equal opportunities to all pupils. We promote positive values, based on Christian teaching, in our daily acts of worship. We also promote British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs to prepare our pupils for life in modern day Britain. We also provide opportunities for our pupils to learn about the contribution of Britons to innovation, excellence and changes in the world. The school offers extended provision through the Breakfast club and daily after school activities; these also promote physical health and well-being.
