Our school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that we plan for our children. Our main aims are to provide opportunities for all children to learn and achieve; to promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and to prepare them for the opportunities and experiences of their next stage of education and future life.
Our curriculum is planned so that children are inspired, encouraged and challenged to develop their individual potential and personality to the full. It is constantly evolving to develop the skills needed for children to become successful learners, help prepare them for life in modern Britain and empower them to achieve success in the future.
We have designed our curriculum to reflect our aims and also to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and other government guidance.
We place a strong emphasis on the development of basic skills, which are necessary to become confident and independent learners. The rehearsal and application of basic skills learned in the core curriculum are a driver for the entire curriculum.
At St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School, children develop a strong sense of moral purpose in addition to a respect and understanding of people who have different characteristics of themselves, whether that be by age, disability, gender, race or sexuality. A rigorous, well planned curriculum delivered by excellent staff in an ethos of care, love and support enables our pupils to be well rounded, empathetic young people who have a thirst for learning and respect for all around them.
Religious education is delivered through the Manchester Diocese scheme of work.
