Rooted in a Christian vision, our curriculum aims to inspire a love of learning through our core values of ‘Belonging, Believing, Building a future’.  Children develop understanding what it means to belong to the St Peter’s family and what it means to be a human being in our community today.   We aim for all children leave us with the confidence, knowledge and skills that they will need for their future.

Our curriculum encourages creativity and investigation in order to engage pupils and give everyone a chance to succeed. At St Peter’s, we celebrate and support differences. Our pedagogy aims to deliver our curriculum in a nuturing and inclusive way at developmentally and age-appropriate stages. Curriculum threadsOur curriculum exposes the children to cultures and differences that they may not otherwise experience. Using Curriculum Maestro from Cornerstones as a spine, we ensure full coverage of National Curriculum and Early Years Framework  and through a range of enrichment activities, we are able to bring the wider curriculum to life. Our pupils help us to tailor the curriculum to their interests and needs. We love to learn creatively in our rural setting by taking learning outside, wherever possible. Through embedding our values in our broad and balanced curriculum, we strive to provide all children with the opportunity to flourish, in order to reach their full potential. 

We have 5 golden threads that run through our curriculum: 



Our long term plans take the National Curriculum and organises it into progressive sets of knowledge and skills that work on a two-year rolling cycle for Years 1-6 and a one-year cycle for Reception.

Each year is then split into 3 or 6 overarching curriculum topic projects. Every topic follows the cycle laid out above: Engage, Develop, Apply, Express.

Each topic has a starter enrichment activity and a final outcome. Throughout this cycle,  knowledge is learned and skills are developed. These are deepened and revisited using formative assessment.
