St Peter's Church of England (VA) Primary School

One Family, Aiming High, Learning Together with God


Curriculum at St. Peter's

Our curriculum is  a reflection of St Peter’s creative outlook and Christian ethos where we believe that creative pupils lead richer lives and grow up to make valuable contributions to society. Our approach is about developing pupils’ creative thinking through a broad, rich curriculum involving cross-curricular projects. St. Peter's has overhauled its curriculum so that it will teach children the fundamental skills needed for a passion for life long learning within the 21st century. We pride ourselves on offering a curriculum that is diverse and represents both BAME and female contribution to history and the future. 


Through the nature of our approach, children will leave St. Peter's with exceptional skills in reading, writing and mathematics. However, this is not all, our children will leave with a well rounded knowledge of history and geography, an understanding of different faiths and a good knowledge of scientific concepts. 


At St. Peter's, our children will flourish so that they can be the individual contributions they were meant to be with emotional intelligence and resilience, a healthy lifestyle and knowledge of how to be safe in modern society. 


Below is our long term plan. From this plan you will see how we fulfil the National Curriculum objectives. To create our curriculum, we listened to the voices of all our stakeholders so that it is unique to the demographics of St. Peter's. 


As a staff, we spent the last three days of the summer term, in 2020 in which we ensured consistency and the interwoven nature of topics through workshops and staff meetings. We identified what makes St. Peter's unique, what our school stands for and the legacy it has had. 


If you have any questions regarding the curriculum, please do contact your class teacher to discuss. 

Timetabling Trial 


At St. Peter's, we like to evaluate our timetabling offer to ensure that we have the best outcomes for our children. 


During autumn of 2023, we will be alternative computing and history. In autumn 1, we will be teaching history across the school and then in autumn 2 we will be teaching computing. As a school, we will then review the impact of this at the end of autumn 2. 


Spring Reflection:


As a school, we feel that our new approach to timetabling has further supported our children and their learning. Moving into the summer term, we are going to be alternating some of our subjects. 


For summer 1, we will be focusing on history and art with the subjects then switiching for summer 2 to computing and music.


We will continue to offer D&T days each half term.
