Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

At All Hallows' CE (VA) Primary School, we are very proud of our child-centred curriculum.

We firmly believe that every child has the right to become a confident and capable reader, writer and mathematician.  We also feel strongly that children’s creativity, inquisitiveness and personal and social skills should be nurtured and grown.

Our Curriculum has been designed to ensure each and every child can ' live life in all its fullness' by offering stimulating and awe-inspiring learning experiences with Christian values at its heart.

It is bespoke to the needs of the pupils at All Hallows’ CE (VA) Primary school not only by focussing on appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum, but by modelling the virtues given to us by Christ and by developing individual and collaborative learning experiences, a positive growth mind set, a sense of responsibility and challenges that take them beyond the classroom.

We are a smaller than average primary school with a constantly evolving curriculum which responds to the needs of learners and their interests by enhancing learning experiences and raising awareness from the local area to national and global arenas. Thus, we will develop outward looking pupils who are able to engage in learning about themselves and have an understanding of the wider world and its complex cultures.

Ultimately our curriculum is intended to:

  • Develop our head and body : What we learn
  • Develop our hearts and character: Who we are
  • Develop our actions and attitudes: How we live and learn
  • Develop our moral compass: Where we fit in the world.
