Curriculum Overview

At Christ Church Primary we offer a broad and balanced curriculum which is shaped by our vision for every child to have life to the full, to flourish in all aspects of their personhood and reach their full potential. Our curriculum is exciting and relevant; it recognises that each pupil is a unique individual and ensures the rounded development of the whole child through both academic and spiritual development. All children access a range of educational experiences and the whole curriculum regardless of their starting points or circumstance. 


We have high expectations for everyone. Our curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and there is good progression of knowledge, understanding and skills for all children. Most subjects are taught through a cross curricular 'Learning Journey' approach where deep, meaningful connections across the curriculum are made, enabling all children to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Some subjects, including P.E., mathematics, phonics and science in key stage 2, are taught separately. 


At Christ Church Primary School we strongly believe that a high quality education in Literacy is essential for children to thrive and achieve their best. Our curriculum is designed so that all children develop fluency and confidence in speaking, reading and writing enabling them to communicate their ideas and emotions, acquire knowledge and build on what they already know. English is at the heart of our curriculum, it is interwoven throughout all we do and in our Learning Journey learning 'every lesson is a literacy lesson'.  


We believe that developing good learning habits with the ability to reflect, be resourceful show reciprocity and be resilient, are essential for children to achieve well now and into the future. These learning attributes enable children to become life long learners with a sense of responsibility, able to make a valuable contribution to the world in which they live. Our curriculum strives to develop these learning capacities encouraging and expecting high levels of independence.


Our school values, along with British values, are at the heart of our curriculum and are taught through our curriculum.
