Curriculum

 

Curriculum intent

 

Bramley St. Peter’s is built on and driven by our core values:

Nurture, Discover and Respect.

 

We serve the community by providing a happy, secure and nurturing Christian environment where all are valued and respected. We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming. We recognise that positive and meaningful relationships are essential for effective learning and respectful behaviour. We believe in the uniqueness of the individual and recognise the range of contributions that each child can make. We provide for the spiritual, emotional, physical, social and academic development of the whole child. We seek to foster self-esteem and encourage high aspirations, so everyone realises their full potential and talents. Our aim is to prepare children for their current and future world in modern Britain and global society.

 

We are committed to providing a broad curriculum which is relevant to the needs of our children, inspiring curiosity and a love of learning. Our curriculum is well structured and topics have been designed to complement and build on previous learning with clear progression and links, so that in subsequent years, children will be able to explore concepts more deeply, applying their knowledge and skills in different contexts.

 

Our curriculum will provide:

  • Opportunities for children to develop positive learning attitudes and skills, based on our Growth Mindset characters; Inspector Independence, Professor Perseverance, Captain Challenge and Major Mistake
  • A thorough grounding in the  basic skills of literacy and numeracy, fulfilling  the requirements of the National Curriculum and meeting the needs of all pupils, including those with SEND
  • Enrichment, to broaden life experiences: educational visits and visitors, residentials, musical tuition, chess tuition and an impressive range of extra-curricular activities (ensuring that cost is not a barrier to participation)
  • A range of first-hand learning experiences
  • Exposure to an extensive range of high quality texts to encourage a love of reading and as a door to further learning
  • An emphasis on the acquisition and command of vocabulary, based on Talk Matters principles
  • A restorative culture where relationships are strengthened
  • Effective social, moral, spiritual and cultural education that makes a strong contribution to pupils’ personal development
  • Skills for life with a focus on health, well-being, safety, self-worth, difference and social responsibility are woven into the curriculum and taught explicitly through our PSHE scheme
