Our curriculum at Christ Church School

The design, content, implementation and evaluation of our curriculum plays a key role in how we make our school vision come to life and enable all in our school to experience life in all its fullness. The ambitious breadth of our curriculum provision and the links we make across the curriculum, to transferable skills and to personal development, including the development of emotional well-being, spirituality and a sense of community and responsibility, are very important parts of our curriculum design. Our curriculum reflects and supports our pursuit of academic excellence for all and our vision for creativity in all we do.

At Christ Church School we are very proud of our broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum. Teaching and learning follows the statutory requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage document for the Reception class and the National Curriculum for Years 1 to 6. To find out about the aims of our curriculum and how we enrich our teaching in all subject areas please click on the curriculum vision and introduction below. We are an inclusive school and welcome pupils with a range of individual needs; we ensure that our full, broad curriculum and wider enrichment activities are accessible to all pupils, making adaptations or access arrangements where needed.

The curriculum overview for each year group (below) provides information about the main topics, knowledge and content to be taught and how this is structured over the year. Skills are also taught alongside the knowledge set out in the overviews; our teaching builds on skills taught in previous year groups as well as laying the foundations for the knowledge and skills to be taught in following years. In the overviews below, specific examples of activities or books are included in some subject areas in italics – these may change from year to year. You can find out more information about our curriculum in our termly class leaflets or by contacting our curriculum leaders for each subject.
