Curriculum Statement

                                                   Curriculum Statement

The National Curriculum in England has undergone a process of transition over the last few years, the main goal being to raise standards. From September 2014, a new curriculum was introduced for children. The whole of Christ Church adopted this curriculum in September 2015.

Curriculum 2014 is designed to be more challenging and the content focusses on essential core subject knowledge and skills. We have therefore structured our curriculum to be a balance between stand-alone content, with discrete teaching of reading, maths and English and thematic approach where the children apply their learning in other subject areas and into a real life context. We believe that the curriculum should be directed towards the needs of our individuals, whilst ensuring that all objectives from the National Curriculum document are covered.  This ensures that our children are well grounded in the key skills, knowledge and understanding.

Core subjects covered are:

  • Mathematics
  • English (reading, writing, speaking & listening, handwriting, spellings & grammar)
  • Science
  • RE
  • Physical Education

 Foundation subjects covered are:

  • Art
  • Design Technology
  • Computing (formerly known as Information Technology)
  • Music
  • History
  • Geography

To learn more about the changes and what this means for you and your child we recommend reading the following informative article on the theschoolrun.com website:

Through the curriculum we offer at Christ Church, we aim to support every child to realise our school vision statement of being “Respectful, Resilient, Resourceful and Reliable” life-long learners.
