Curriculum

Our school curriculum is designed to enable all children to develop a love of learning and the necessary skills to explore and investigate the world around them.

Individual subjects are taught within a wider topic which provides a focus or context for the children's learning.

Each topic covers objectives from the National Curriculum, which are statutory, but develop and enhance these objectives by creating investigations, giving hands-on experiences for the children to learn from and allowing the children to question and explore the world they live in.

There is a focus on giving children knowledge about certain subjects or events, whilst imparting and developing the skills required to become active global citizens in the 21st Century. St. Peter's seeks to prepare children to achieve their full potential during their time at our school, to give them a confident grounding in the knowledge and skills required for their future education and finally for their role in the world as adults.
