The Academy Curriculum
At St. Peter's we follow the programmes of study from the National Curriculum.
Our curriculum includes all the activities and experiences that take place within the school both formally and informally. It includes the organisation and methods of learning used by teachers and teaching assistants as well as the forms of knowledge, skills, and concepts that are learned and taught. The curriculum also includes the development of positive values and attitudes which contribute to our distinctly Christian ethos.
The curriculum is broad and balanced to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, emotional and physical development of all pupils whilst preparing them for adult life and society. Under the 1988 Education Act parents have access to certain documents and policies relating to the curriculum. If you require more information you are welcome to ask the Academy Office directly.
Here at St Peter's we believe that all our children can become fluent readers and writers. This is why we teach reading through Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised, which is a systematic and synthetic phonics programme. We start teaching phonics in Reception and follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised progression, which ensures children build on their growing knowledge of the alphabetic code, mastering phonics to read and spell as they move through school.
