Curriculum and extra curricular
At The District CE Primary School, we aim to provide a curriculum that supports children in becoming the best that they can be. We endeavour to equip our pupils with the requisite skills and knowledge to be successful, independent and motivated learners in readiness for the next step in their education. We have designed a curriculum, which combines the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum, with a wider range of experiences and opportunities to enrich and expand pupils’ learning.
We are The District Family; we expect our pupils to be considerate, co-operative and empathetic individuals. The curriculum is underpinned by our Christian Values, which help children to develop their social and moral code, as they build their sense of uniqueness and self-worth as an individual.
We aspire to develop positive learning attitudes and for our pupils to be life-long learners, so we provide engaging tasks to stimulate their thinking. We want learning to be sticky, so we teach strategies for learning: to memorise facts, practise new skills, solve problems and to develop ideas and concepts. We teach children to understand their personal relationship with learning and encourage independence and resilience.
We aim to make our pupils responsible and respectful global citizens. Our curriculum embraces the rich cultural heritage of the locality, as well as the wider world; it provides opportunities for study beyond the classroom and encourages pupils to consider their roles and responsibilities within the world. We have strong links with the community; St John’s Church and Hope Academy. We plan for visiting experts to share their knowledge and experience with pupils and provide regular opportunities for parental engagement.
We want our pupils to be fit and healthy, so we provide a range of opportunities for sport and fitness; we teach the importance of diet and promote wellbeing.
We will regularly evaluate the effectiveness and impact of our curriculum, listening to our pupils, parents and staff, and will make revisions to ensure that our curriculum is fit for purpose.
