Curriculum

For more information about the National Curriculum, click on the image above.

At St Edmund's we aim to provide the children with a curriculum which is broad, well balanced and above all stimulates the children to learn. In addition to acquiring skills and knowledge we aim to help the children to grow in confidence and maturity so that they can enter secondary school, and later, adulthood with the ability to pursue wholeheartedly, academic social and cultural activities.

We deliver programmes of study that meet the National Curriculum requirements issued by the DfE. This National Curriculum comprises of three core subjects:

English, Mathematics, Science

And foundation subjects:

History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education (PE), Computing, Religious Education and MFL (Modern Foreign Languages)

At St Edmund's we place great emphasis on Numeracy and Literacy as these underpin many of the other aspects of the taught curriculum.

Whilst the core subjects are taught on a regular basis the foundation subjects may be taught as blocks of work over a matter of weeks.

The planning of the curriculum is based around a rolling programme to ensure coverage of selected topics by all children who progress through the school. The rolling programmes for both Key Stages make use of our local environment. We also study other localities so that children gain an understanding of Britain as a diverse society.

There is now a great deal of emphasis in the use of ICT across the curriculum with a focus on ‘Computing’ and, in particular, computer skills to enhance the learning in all the subjects of the curriculum. Through the subject of ‘Computing’ we aim to teach a progressive set of skills that enable all the children to become competent and confident users of ICT.

At St Edmund's we seek to create opportunities for children to experience and excel in a range of activities that enhance and extend National Curriculum. Children have opportunities both inside and outside the classroom eg Residential trips, gifted and talented workshops at highs schools, a variety of sporting events and art projects. We also have excellent after school clubs.

When children leave St Edmund's RC Primary School at the end of Year 6, they should be equipped with the full range of skills that enables them to become lifelong learners.
