At the very heart of our school is the vision to help and nurture every member of the Christ Church family to be the very best they can be. We have a caring and dedicated staff team who aim to provide the very best opportunities for our children, our school family and our community. Our curriculum not only includes the National Curriculum (2014) but also the range of extra opportunities and activities the school organises in order to enrich the knowledge and learning experiences for our children as well as supporting their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
The National Curriculum (2014) covers the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science together with the foundation subjects of Art and Design, Computing, Design Technology, Geography, History, Music, Physical Education, and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE).
Religious Education is also a core element of our school curriculum.
At Christ Church, we design and create our own rich, coherent and inspiring curriculum supported by our ethos, values and aims. Our values and aims place great importance on developing eloquent, independent, reflective learners who grow to be happy and compassionate adults. Our curriculum aims to promote a positive attitude to learning and to enable all children to learn and develop their knowledge, skills and understanding to the fullest through a stimulating environment and broad and balanced experiences.
Our curriculum is designed to provide children with the opportunities to acquire knowledge and expertise in the basics of reading, writing, speaking and mathematics, as well as helping them to develop their understanding of the world they live in on a local, national and global scale. At its heart, our children are provided with opportunities to apply their knowledge and immerse themselves in rich, relevant and challenging subject content and real world problems in order to build and further develop their skills and understanding. Across all subject areas, our children are given opportunities to talk, think deeply, ask questions, debate moral and social issues and showcase beautiful work in front of an authentic audience. Our children’s’ learning journeys are often developed, displayed and celebrated in a variety of ways, including through: music, drama, sculpture, collections of writing, art, science and mathematics in the aim that each and every child flourishes, finds fulfilment in producing work of real value and develops a love of learning.
