The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave.
We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their full potential.
At St. Paul’s each class teacher produces a class newsletter each half term so that parents/carers are aware of the class topics and any special provision to support learning. A list of extra-curricular after school and lunchtime clubs is also updated each half term. In addition the school provides opportunities for wider experiences through school trips and visitors to school to bring learning to life. Some of these can be viewed in our gallery.
We use a Phonics scheme called “Letters and Sounds” and a variety of different reading schemes in KS1. They are:
- Rigby Stars Independent
- Rigby Stars Guided
- Collins Big Cat
- Story World
- Phonics Bug
