The Christian Vision for our school influences and underpins all of our curriculum aims and is as follows:
‘Working Together, Valuing Everyone, Learning for Life’
The biblical basis for this vision is: Luke 10:25-37 The Parable of the Good Samaritan
This parable underpins our ethos of love, respect, acceptance, religious tolerance, attitudes to people who are 'different', compassion, who is a 'neighbour' (including our global neighbours) and how we should we treat others.
At All Saints’ we live out Christian values, with them being at the heart of everything we do; they shape the way in which we guide our children to become good citizens. We aim to develop ‘aspirational lifelong learning’ within a nurturing environment where everyone is valued and respected.
The Curriculum at All Saints’
‘Aspirational Lifelong Learning’
The curriculum at All Saints’ has been carefully planned with the aim of generating a love of learning in our children; they will experience a broad, rich and engaging curriculum, with a global dimension woven throughout so that children are prepared to live in an international world.
The National Curriculum forms the basis of our curriculum planning – themes are carefully selected for our children, ensuring that they learn about things which are of importance and relevance to them, whilst expanding their knowledge and skills more broadly. Plans have been carefully structured to promote remembering and long-term learning, making links between subjects and themes and reinforcing key concepts and vocabulary.
The personal development and welfare of our children is at the heart of all that we do – all of our curriculum plans are underpinned by our inclusive Christian ethos where children will learn about values such as Thankfulness, Compassion and Respect.
Our curriculum aims to develop ‘Aspirational Lifelong Learning’, enabling our children to acquire the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
In addition to the National Curriculum, our curriculum comprises:
