Curriculum Statement

Intent 

We have designed our curriculum to meet the needs of all learners within our Federation and it is underpinned by our Christian vision.  

Our Christian Vision 

‘A community of learning and growing in a culture of respect.’ 

In all things you yourself must be an example of good behaviour. 

Be sincere and serious in your teaching. 

(Titus 2:7) 

Our curriculum provides children with high quality learning opportunities across all subject disciplines. At Holy Trinity the curriculum is integral to our ethos which is based on respect and lived out through our Christian values. The curriculum supports and enhances learning through purposeful, well planned and structured units which give children the knowledge and skills to make strong academic progress, safe choices and be positive and active citizens in our local, national and international community.   

Within our culture of respect, we develop children’s resilience and perseverance; giving them the confidence to be independent thinkers with high aspirations.  An essential part of this at Holy Trinity is the promotion of children’s physical and mental well-being through explicit curriculum teaching and enrichment opportunities.

 

Implementation 

Research led approaches are used across the curriculum 

Expectations are high for all children and all aspects of the curriculum 

Small steps and careful sequencing of learning support the acquisition of knowledge 

Purposeful links are made between subjects 

Enrichment opportunities are carefully considered to add value to children’s learning 

Community is at the heart of our learning  

Themes are used as a vehicle to enhance subject learning and links.  

 

Impact 

The impact of our curriculum can be seen in the children’s ability to fulfil our school’s Christian aims.   

Our Christian Aims – The RESPECT Code 

Responsible – We are trustworthy, organised, reliable and friendly 

Expectations – We aim high in our learning and enjoy playing safely together  

Special – We are all equal but different  

Participate – We are positively engaged in the life of our school  

Effort – We work hard to make good choices  

Community – We are proud to stand together as a school  

Thankful – We value the care we share with each other 

During their time at Holy Trinity, children gain the skills and knowledge to make strong progress from their individual start points.  

The curriculum ensures they understand the issues facing themselves and their community and that they are able to make informed choices.  

When children leave Holy Trinity, they are academically and socially well prepared and ready for their next school experience and / or phase of education.  

 

Curriculum Updates...

As part of the continued growth and strengthening of our federation, we are undertaking a curriculum review. We are in the process of developing a curriculum from nursery through to Year 6 which engages and excites our children and provides them with deep and rich learning opportunities across all subject areas. 

Further information will be added here in the coming weeks.  

If you have any questions regarding our curriculum or its development, please don't hesitate to contact me or pop into school to see me. I look forward to updating you very soon.
