At St Peter's we promote learning and personal growth and development, always placing Christ at the centre of all we do. We follow the National Curriculum requirements but also plan learning so that it is engaging, provokes curiosity and involves all children. We use our St Peter's Learning Keys to teach our children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge.
We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning, through adopting a highly practical and cross-curricular approach to learning. Our curriculum aims to deliver a twenty-first century education that will equip our children with the skills required to be an independent and responsible citizen, with skills that can be used for jobs that are yet to be created.
We value the way in which all children are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures. We ensure respect for all in our school and use the Gospel Values, (such as truth, forgiveness and sacrifice) to instil qualities we want all St Peter's children to have deeply rooted within them. We value and foster the spiritual and moral development of each person and our vision is for all to achieve their true potential, academically and personally.
We will ensure that at every level, in all our work and through all aspects of the school community and its life, everyone will be treated equally, reflecting the Equality Act 2010 and that the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations are complied with, making the curriculum accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs. We will not discriminate against the protected characteristics: age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
In order to promote diversity and equality for all, we embed the teaching of equality and British Values through our curriculum.
If you have any questions about our curriculum, please do not hesitate in contacting us via the school office.
