Our curriculum intent
Our curriculum at Peterchurch Primary School incorporates the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum, immersing pupils in progressive knowledge and skills. The school’s curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning and employment.
The aspirations and commitment at Peterchurch Primary School is to provide opportunities for all our children, so that they can develop into confident, independent and successful learners, who have ambition and pride to make positive contributions to their community and wider British society.
In order to achieve this, we offer a curriculum that is taught with consideration of the needs of all learners and ensures essential skills in reading, writing and mathematics that are built upon so enabling children to successfully access all subjects within the national curriculum, in readiness for the next stage of learning.
At our school, we put pupil wellbeing at the forefront of the curriculum and all aspects of school life.
We place a strong emphasis on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all our pupils, placing strong emphasis on our school values: respect, kindness, determination, pride and responsibility. Through a pastoral, nurturing approach, we encourage children to understand that learning is a life-long journey.
We aim to offer a wide variety of enrichment experiences to enhance the skills and knowledge of all of the children. Many of these experiences develop the whole child and further develop resilience and confidence. We offer: Forest School, curriculum visits, curriculum events and visitors, specialist music provision, cooking, residential visits and outdoor education opportunities.
To further enhance our curriculum offer pupils have the opportunity to attend after-school clubs in a range of areas, such as: creative writing, dance, arts and crafts, coding, gardening, football, Tag Rugby, netball and other sports.
