St. Paul's Curriculum Statement of Intent

This declaration and our Mission Statement as a whole, is central to all aspects of school life and is the source of inspiration for our school curriculum.

By developing our children spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, we believe our children are better equipped to face the diverse and ever-changing world that we live in, ready to thrive and contribute positively to life in our local community, modern Britain and globally.

We offer all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential in a learning environment that is enjoyable, supportive and stimulating – an environment in which our children can learn through a richness of learning experiences that are thoughtfully shaped to be inclusive of different learning styles, abilities and needs. By celebrating our uniqueness and Christian distinctiveness, our children are able to develop their skills and knowledge in a wide range of subjects and topics hence developing all aspects of their being.

We strive to equip our children with skills and knowledge to make them independent and resilient learners: learners who are inquisitive and ambitious, who are adaptable in their approaches and who can express themselves creatively. We aim to develop knowledge and understanding through an enriched creative curriculum as we feel this is the best approach for our children to explore their gifts and talents and to grow, with success, towards the fullness of human living. 

At St. Paul’s, the quality of the journey our children take when acquiring knowledge and skills determine the quality of outcomes which are achieved. We aim, through high quality teaching, a love for learning and a carefully structured curriculum, to provide a rich range of learning experiences that allow long life skills and knowledge to flourish and live long in memory.
