Curriculum

At St Andrew's C of E, our vision is that every child should flourish. We aim to achieve our vision by ensuring pupils have the opportunity to: 

Learn through an inspiring curriculum.

  • Provide a broad and balanced education for all pupils that’s coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge for skills and future learning and employment
  • Enable pupils to develop knowledge, understand concepts and acquire skills, and be able to choose and apply these in relevant situations
  • Support pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
  • Develop language of all pupils in a challenging way, to give them a vocabulary for life.

 Learn to develop healthy lifestyles.

  • Support pupils’ physical development and responsibility for their own health, and enable them to be active and safe
  • Promote a positive attitude towards learning and failure 
  • Support pupils to make safe choices in the real and online world

 Learn to help one another shine.

  • Ensure equal access to learning for all pupils, with high expectations for every pupil and appropriate levels of challenge and support
  • Have a high academic/vocational/technical ambition for all pupils

 Learning to live as part of the community.

PSHE Parent Consultation

From September 2020, it is a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum.

As part of implementing the RSE curriculum, schools must consult with the children, parents, staff and governors to ensure there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content.

St Andrew’s second consultation process ran from 8th November 2020 and closed on the16th December 2020.
