A curriculum which builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points.

The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills to be successful, to improve possibilities and give pupils the necessary independence and motivation as learners in readiness for their next stage of education and to fulfill their aspirations beyond education.

Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum has been carefully designed and planned in response to the needs and interests of the children at St. Paul’s.

As well as addressing the scope of the National Curriculum, the St. Paul’s curriculum is designed to ensure that all children leave us as confident and competent members of society who can make a positive contribution, and who have ambitions for the future.

The curriculum is carefully sequenced to ensure that children know more, remember more, and experience more. We ensure that children are exposed to the best examples of things that people have thought, said and created throughout history and throughout the world, to raise their aspirations and to develop their knowledge and understanding.

Our new curriculum is starting to be launched from September 2022, but due to the coverage of our previous curriculum, some units on our long term plan may differ for the next academic year, during this transition phase, to ensure that our children will have covered all key areas of the National Curriculum by the time they reach the end of Year 6.

Below you will find information about our curriculum, including our curriculum overview, subject maps and progression documents for each curriculum area.

Teaching & Learning Handbooks

St. Paul’s Adventures – 11 by 11

At St. Paul’s CE Primary School, we are persistent in our approach to ensure children can read, write and have excellent mathematical understanding by the time they move to the next phase in their education. However, we also want to provide our children with so much more. We want our children to have, and remember, amazing experiences and opportunities that many may otherwise not get. We want to develop exceptional cultural capital and help our pupils to make positive contributions to our communities.

To ensure we provide this to all of our children, we have developed our St. Paul’s Adventures. These are 11 experiences for our primary school pupils, which they will experience during their time with au at St. Paul’s CE Primary School. These experiences are in additional to all of the education visits we already provide our pupils. The experiences chosen by staff are:

  • Seed to supper
  • 3 Good deeds in 3 days
  • Theatre/panto visit
  • Zoo visit
  • Beach visit
  • Camp outside
  • Residential/ Sleepover
  • Walk through a forest/nature walk
  • Interact with other OCT schools – events
  • Hold a creature
  • Visit a library

Remote Learning 

All staff at St Paul’s C of E understand that remote learning, where needed, should be:

  • of a high-quality
  • properly safeguarded
  • aligned as closely as possible with in-school provision.

The aim of this policy is to outline a consistent approach to remote learning for pupils who are not in school due to any exceptional circumstances or illness. St Paul’s C of E Primary School will be able to immediately offer access to remote education, where required and appropriate.

Work will be set following the principles outlined below:

  • Class teachers will ensure that the amount of work provided will be in line with what the child/children would cover if they were in class.
  • Class teachers will ensure that remote learning will be ready to be accessed no longer than 24 hours after the request for remote learning is made.
  • Class teachers will ensure that work will be uploaded onto Class Dojo, or a paper pack will be provided for collection from the school office.

If a parent/carer wishes to request access to remote learning for any reason, they should contact the school office in the first instance and they will liaise with the most appropriate member of staff to provide remote learning access.
