At St. George's, our curriculum is based on a thematic approach with, whenever possible, the same topic being studied throughout the school, but with different elements and skills being studied. Children are ‘hooked’ into their learning with experience days and there is always a clear and purposeful outcome to their learning which is shared with parents. Parents are informed of learning via a termly overview and through the class pages on the website. Parents and pupils are asked to evaluate the topic to help with future planning and to enhance the development of the areas studied. We utilise the strengths of our staff to meet the needs of our pupils. Music and French are taught by specialist teachers. We enhance learning opportunities through visits and visitors as well as through the use of Pupil Premium and PE legacy funding.
As an inclusive school , we believe that every child matters and we work towards our children knowing how to stay safe, be healthy, achieve economic well-being , make a positive contribution and enjoy their learning to subsequently achieve. With these foci in mind, we deliver an enriched curriculum that meet the needs of our pupils. Such activities may include:- Forest school outdoor learning, First Aid course, enterprise projects, road safety, water safety, fire safety, team building, taking part in Anti Bullying activities, cooking, supporting community based projects, fundraising, Child line projects and e-safety awareness.
