Our Curriculum Intent
At St Nicholas we provide an engaging, experience-rich curriculum children enjoy. We develop confident speakers who use their developing linguistic skills to articulate how they feel and what they think both in subject discussion and socially. This supports children to become confident, have-a-go learners who value the benefits of living and working in a Christian community. The curriculum will develop an understanding of the world, society and cultural life locally and further afield, enabling our children to become tolerant and aspirational young people. Children will utilise our rural environment, which provides numerous opportunities for learning in, about and through the outdoors enabling long-term well-being and care for the environment.
We work within the guidelines set by the Department for Education and follow the National Curriculum in a creative and imaginative way to engage and inspire all learners and to provide opportunities and support so that all children make good progress.
Units of learning are carefully planned and sequenced to ensure that children are able to develop their skills and knowledge in each subject area. There are regular opportunities to revisit and recap learning in order to embed the relevant skills and knowledge.
Further details of each term's learning plans can be found in the Class Pages in the Children's Section.
