Curriculum Intent

St Peter’s RC Primary School is committed to meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum whilst also providing additional experiences and opportunities which best meet the learning and social needs of the children in our school.

At St Peter’s RC we want our children to experience a curriculum:

  • Where our strong Catholic ethos permeates through life, providing the children with a safe, calm and nurturing environment
  • That has knowledge and vocabulary at the heart of their learning
  • That is rich and enables children to see the world from a range of different perspectives
  • Where knowledge underpins and enables the application of skills
  • Where the needs of all children are catered for
  • That develops in children, resilience, perseverance, challenge and support so they have the confidence to aim high
  • That offers opportunities to delve deeper into their learning through progression of skills each year
  • That equips children with the knowledge of how to live healthy lifestyles – both physically and mentally
  • That promotes and reflects British Values
  • Where spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences are interwoven in all that we do
  • That enables children to connect to the past, live in the present and look to the future
