Pupils at St George's have a distinctive and personalised curriculum that will prepare them for the ever-changing world that they will grow into. It is a bespoke curriculum written by teachers, governors, parents and kids with only our pupils in mind, to meet their needs and build on their interests. It meets the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. (2014) If you want to know more about the National Curriculum we follow you can use the following links. https://www.gov.uk/national-curriculum https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum
Our school has a connected curriculum that teaches the required knowledge of the national curriculum in a discreet way, yet doesn't decompartmentalise learning into boxes.
Our curriculum is delivered through a desire to create lifelong learners. Developing independent, thinking learners is at the heart of all we do. Children who do not rely on extrinsic motivation to drive their learning rather have an intrinsic drive for excellence and mastery. Time is available for children to master curriculum areas and find their skills and talents. Time is given to reflect on learning, to review, revise and improve.
Our curriculum focuses on inspiring and providing space and opportunities for mastery- creating writers, mathematicians, artists, musicians, historians, geographers, engineers, scientists etc
Our curriculum celebrates and recognises the benefits of outdoor learning – using the school grounds and local educational visits to impact learning and celebrating the environment and community in which we live and learn.
At St George's all class teachers are responsible for providing a curriculum that is suitable for all pupils in the class, including those with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND) with support from the SENCo. We have high expectations for all pupils and are committed to ensuring our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014. Our inclusion statement emphasises the importance of providing an inclusive learning environment for all pupils including those with SEND. Additional information on this can be found in our Special Educational Needs Information Report and Equalities Policy.
