Curriculum

Intent

Implementation

As a Church of England School, the Christian faith is the foundations of everything that we do at Christ Church. We strongly believe that our personalised PHSE curriculum and our supportive RE curriculum focus on positive well-being, self-awareness, relationships and the wider world. The skills that are taught enable learners to develop skills and understanding which equip learners to make positive choices, widen horizons and create aspirations for life as local, national and global citizens.

We strive to ensure our pupils have access to a wide range of opportunities which promote personal safety and pupil voice with all children being actively involved in whole school decision making through the School Ethos Group, School Council and Eco Team and many positions of responsibility. Our curriculum recognises the importance of pupils’ physical and mental well-being in shaping their long term life-style choices.

In order to create firm foundations, we believe and value in ensuring our learners speak clearly and articulately and to read and write effectively. Reading is a priority at Christ Church and we use high quality texts to extend and deepen pupils understanding and use of vocabulary. We want pupils to develop a love of reading, we do this through a well-developed phonics base and high quality texts throughout the curriculum.

Mathematics is an integral aspect of life and with this in mind we strive to ensure that all our children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them throughout their life. We aim to create a firm foundation of knowledge and develop skills in order to build confidence, resilience and a passion for maths in our children.

Children from across the school have access to a wide range of extra-curricular activities in sport, music and other creative areas.

At Christ Church we believe in supporting and developing all the needs of our whole community, therefore, Continuing Professional Development for all staff is a priority. In doing this we ensure that staff have the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver the highest standards across the entire curriculum. Music and sports specialists work alongside teaching staff to enhance curriculum delivery. Subject Leaders have the necessary expertise to play a pivotal role in both the design and delivery of their subject area; ensuring a clear progression of both skills and knowledge across all year groups, underpinned by a robust assessment system. They can confidently articulate are belief in Sweller’s work and how learning is re-visited and developed year-on-year, to ensure a real depth of learning right across the school.

At Christ Church we are committed to working in partnership with parents as we believe that when home and school work closely together we get the best outcomes for our pupils. We continue to nurture these relationships and strive to keep a positive link.
