This section of the St. Charles’ website is focused on our Curriculum and provides an overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 to 6. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Please read how we promote British Values here at St Charles.
It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. This includes an ever growing range of ‘Extra Curricular’ opportunities available to our children across all year groups.
The community of St. Charles’ School believes that Jesus is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to giving every child, every opportunity to achieve their potential in mind and body in a happy, safe and caring environment.
At St. Charles’ we aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve all that they can. If you have any questions about our curriculum or the work we do in school, please speak to your child’s class teacher or alternatively, contact our Headteacher, Mrs. Reeves, who will be happy to help.
The National Curriculum Statutory Requirements, Class Curriculum Maps and Term Plans can all be found in Our Classes section of our website along with evidence of our Curriculum work.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. Our SEND philosophy places SEND children at the heart of personalised learning and our curriculum is tailored to meet individual pupils needs. At times and when it is felt appropriate, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented. To successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum St. Charles’ RCVA Primary School remains committed to:
A range of teaching and learning styles.
Differentiated learning materials
Access to ICT and Technology.
Additional in class support
Additional out of class support
Flexible groupings – including small group support work.
An innovative and supportive curriculum.
The appropriate use of rewards and sanctions.
A broad range of extra-curricular activities.
Assessment procedures that emphasise pupils’ strengths and achievements.
Applications during national testing at Key Stage 2 to obtain access arrangements as appropriate.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
