Our Curriculum


At St Peter's we follow the 2014 National Curriculum (please see the parent's guide below for a more detailed explanation) . Our staff aim to plan an inspiring curriculum that engages children to learn new skills and acquire plenty of knowledge. We want our children to enjoy their learning; develop enquiring minds, develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens of the world, and develop a sense of their own nationality and culture, at the same time developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others. Most of all, we want our children to develop all the skills they will need in order to confidently face life in modern Britain.


Children are also encouraged to involve themselves in one of the many extra curricular activities on offer.


Curriculum Content

Each term we provide parents with a curriculum overview of the topics to be covered in their child's class. Many subjects are taught through cross-curricular links which focus on a particular theme to bring a contextualized learning experience for the children. Parents may then wish to talk about these topics at home with their child, or perhaps arrange a family outing to increase awareness and understanding of a subject.


In Reception class the teaching follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum based upon the children’s interests. Because of this it will vary from year to year. Yearly Overviews are available by clicking on the links below. If you have any further questions about what your child is learning then please feel free to speak to your child’s class teacher.

We believe that whilst Maths and English are important there is much more to education. We underpin all that we do with English and Maths but also belive that a broad and balanced curriculum is achieved through children taking part in many other activities and subjects.

Each Class has a session of Maths and English in the morning.
