Our Curriculum

At St Chad’s C.E. Primary School, we follow the National EYFS Curriculum for Nursery and Reception, and the National Curriculum (2014) for Key Stages One and Two. An exciting, engaging, and effective curriculum is essential to enable high quality teaching and learning to take place.

At St Chad’s, children in the Early Years Foundation Stage follow short topics that address the requirements of the EYFS Curriculum, and enable all children to make at least expected progress across the three Prime Areas of Learning and four Specific Areas of Learning. In Reception the children engage in a structured synthetic phonics approach which enables them to develop early reading and writing skills.

Children across Key Stage One and Key Stage Two take part in daily Mathematics and English lessons to support them in meeting or exceeding the Age-Related Expectations of the National Curriculum 2014. Children in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two follow the school’s bespoke curriculum in which they develop the knowledge, skills and understanding enshrined within the National Curriculum 2014 through engagement with termly cross-curricular topics. Topics are designed to be relevant, motivating and engaging for the children, and inclusive of all groups of children and individuals across the school. Science and ICT are taught as isolated subjects but linked to the topic where appropriate. Religious education is taught through the Staffordshire Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, and where it naturally fits, is addressed through the Key Skills Curriculum. Where natural links with the Key Skills Curriculum are not present RE is taught in isolation, but links are made to the children’s context and community, and other areas of learning where appropriate. Children in Year 3, all take part in violin lessons through the K2M project. All children in Y4-6 are invited to take part in music lessons with peripatetic teachers at a subsidised cost to parents.

Learning outside the classroom is firmly embedded within our curriculum. Children undertake termly educational visits linked to their Key Skills Curriculum topics, and make use of the school grounds and local area to contextualise and support their learning. Visitors to school are frequent and a regular feature with parents taking part in regular curriculum activities.
