WE ARE PROUD
At St Paul’s, we are committed to delivering an ambitious curriculum for our unique and wonderful learners that equips them with the knowledge and cultural capital that ensures they are well prepared for the next phase of their education and lives. We encourage our children to take risks and persevere, in a supportive ‘I can’ environment so that they develop into confident, self-assured independent learners.
OUR CHILDREN HAVE A RICH CURRICULUM
We have high expectations for our children through our curriculum that is coherently planned and sequenced towards acquiring cumulative knowledge and skills to ensure broad coverage and progression.
Integral to the success and the engagement of our children, is the richness of our curriculum which is enhanced by immersive activities, experiences and extra-curricular opportunities. These include:
AT ST PAUL’S, WE READ
At St Paul’s, we aim to build a love of reading from the moment children start school through immersing children in quality texts as part of the curriculum offer and there is an expectation that all children read and are read to daily.
We equip our children with phonics knowledge they need through the delivery of Sounds Write and develop language comprehension through book talk. This allows our children to access and engage with all elements of our broad and balanced curriculum.
Throughout Key Stage 2, this is built on through daily Destination Reader sessions and the use of Accelerated Reader to ensure children are reading books to develop fluency and at the appropriate level for comprehension.
Each classroom has a well-resourced and appealing book corner which is supplemented by our school library and our librarian who promotes reading, organises competitions and year group book clubs. She is ably supported by our dedicated team of child librarians who apply for their roles.
WE ENSURE A CURRICULUM FOR ALL
The academy provides a highly inclusive environment where children, of all abilities, are supported to flourish and achieve their full potential:
