'Let your light shine before others so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in Heaven.' Matthew 5 v 16
At Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School, we want our children to be shining lights in the world. To enable this, we offer a curriculum that has three core values at its heart:
• achieving academic excellence,
• inspiring a curiosity for learning,
• developing personal and spiritual attributes, passions and talents.
Our aim is to produce globally-aware citizens who are knowledgeable about the world in which they live and their footprint upon it. Our young people will value justice and they will be keen to take social action, courageously speaking up for themselves and for those around them. Our children will be resilient and creative, finding ways to make the world a better place. Our Christian values are a golden thread through all we teach: respect, responsibility, tolerance, integrity, courage and perseverance.
Our curriculum is built upon five key foundations:
Through research and quality professional development, our teachers are experts in the subjects that they are teaching. Their passion and depth of understanding will ensure that the children are enthused and inspired by their new found knowledge. Each year of teaching will build upon the prior learning set down.
‘Metacognition’ is the process of thinking about thinking. In all our learning, we provide children with the metacognitive tools (or ‘thinking’ tools) that they need to organise their understanding. By engaging with our curriculum, we will teach our children to become critical and resilient thinkers who are not only confident to ask questions, but who are informed and articulate enough to ask the right questions.
Throughout the curriculum, children’s learning will work towards a purposeful final product. We believe that there is much learning in the process of evaluating and editing. Carefully considered feedback from adults enables children to make substantial progress when planning, developing, honing and producing a finished product.
Oracy and Vocabulary
A love of language and effective communication is central to our curriculum. We ensure that our children speak with enthusiasm from their earliest years and rapidly acquire the skills that they need to be confident, but considered and considerate orators.
Providing our children with memorable experiences is key to our curriculum offer. We ensure that every area of learning is supplemented with visits and trips, encounters and adventures which will equip them with the confidence, knowledge and skills they need for a successful, happy and productive life.
Every subject in our curriculum has been carefully designed. The documents on this page provide intent, implementation and impact statements for each area of learning.
