Curriculum Overview 2016

 

Here at St. Alban’s children are taught through an engaging curriculum, as a SMALLER THAN AVERAGE SCHOOL we are proud to offer a curriculum that takes into consideration the different learning needs and styles of all our children. Our topic themes are carefully chosen and encourage exploration and enquiry through first hand experience learning, which is finely balanced with strong discrete subject teaching, leading to a vibrant curriculum for everyone to enjoy.

 

Our carefully designed, eclectic curriculum has our children at its very centre. As a SMALLER THAN AVERAGE SCHOOL we offer a high quality learning experience, where each child is seen as special, with unique qualities to be nurtured and celebrated. We strive to inspire children as individuals, leading them to realise their full potential, preparing them academically, socially and spiritually to become tolerant and respectful citizens of the future.

 

New and exciting opportunities in and outside the classroom are threaded through our entire curriculum, creating a positive learning culture that promotes personal responsibility develops independence and stimulates aspirations. Within this caring and supportive environment, which reflects our Christian ethos we strive for our children to gain self-belief, empowering them to have the confidence to try something new or different, to take and mange risk effectively and develop an understanding that “mistakes are good” because that’s how we learn.

 

As SMALLER THAN AVERAGE SCHOOL staff know our children well and are well placed to meet the learning needs of all children. All staff use their knowledge of the children to adapt their teaching to meet the different and developing learning needs, employing a range of strategies and techniques to ensure all children access an appropriate and curriculum that enables them to make at least good progress from their starting point.

 

English, Mathematics, Science, RE and PE are all taught as discrete subjects, cross-curricular links are made to enhance and deepen learning opportunities with particular attention given to integrating subjects only where it works well. Links to themes and subjects are only made where appropriate, thus ensuring specific skills and concepts are well taught without loss of content or rigour.

 

Our innovative curriculum is well established and a particular strength of the school engaging children, parents and governors …not to mention teachers! We’re a SMALL SCHOOL with a BIG PERSONALITY and a desire for ST. ALBAN’S to STAND OUT. We’re here to support our children to achieve the highest standards, instilling within them a thirst for knowledge and a drive to become LIFE LONG LEARNERS, where anything is possible.

 

 

We invite you to join the SMALL SCHOOL with the BIG IDEAS and a HEART

where a WORLD OF OPPORTUNITY waits.
