Our Curriculum Intent Statement


Our Curriculum embodies the ethos of community and confidence. We provide high quality teaching of a stimulating curriculum which enables each child to develop the knowledge needed to succeed and flourish in each subject in an engaging, inspiring and supportive community atmosphere of learning. Each curriculum area's knowledge is learnt, explored, revised and applied which enables every member of our learning community to feel successful and thrive through the supportive challenge our whole school's enthusiasm for learning provides. We value our SEND pupils and ensure that they can access the same curriculum through individualised scaffolding and support which enables them to achieve, feeling the inspiration our community of learners provides. 

This grounding enables our pupils to feel confident to show their best. The firm base of curriculum knowledge our supportive community atmosphere enables in our pupils develops the full potential of every child, providing them with the confidence to experiment in their learning, it encourages pupils' enthusiasms, fostering their curiosity and sparking their excitement. Our pupils' individual inquisitiveness is stimulated to ask and find out why things happen, encouraging them to ask questions and to offer their own solutions to problems, enabling them to become independent and effective learners; confident, enthusiastic and skilled, empowered to succeed through curiosity and persistence.

Through our Christian Faith, we acknowledge our responsibility to all, to enrich lives and show love and respect within our school family.  We believe in lifelong learning aiming to equip our children to live life today and for tomorrow rooted in Christian love.  This is rooted in our mission statement:

 Learning, Loving and living with Jesus

‘Keep your roots deep in Jesus Christ the Lord, build your lives on him

and always be thankful.’  Colossians 2:7 

At Inskip St. Peter’s our Curriculum has been designed to ensure each and every child can ' live life in all its fullness' by offering stimulating and awe-inspiring learning experiences with Christian values at its heart. 

Every child is recognised as a unique individual and we celebrate and welcome differences within our school community.  Our values of Compassion Friendship  Respect Forgiveness Trust and Thankfulness are rooted in all that we do.  We believe that with a broad and engaging curriculum our pupils can achieve anything, developing them not just as learners but as young people destined to contribute to a global society.

We recognise that a curriculum has to be broad and balanced and offer pupils opportunities to grow as individuals as well as learners, in order to prepare our pupils for life beyond school in a diverse and ever changing world.

A primary focus of the curriculum at St Peter’s is to raise pupils’ aspirations, create a sense of personal pride and achievement, provide a purpose and relevance for learning and ultimately help every individual pupil find their strengths and interests.

The National Curriculum is the bedrock of our learning with a high priority on the fundamentals of literacy and mathematics. However, our educational experience seeks to go way beyond that through a range of topics designed to meet our specific curriculum needs. Teachers skilfully weave elements of learning together to create a unique and enriching global curriculum which is coherently planned and sequenced allowing all pupils to further deepen their knowledge, skills and understanding in all aspects of learning.

Our curriculum provides stretch and challenge for all groups to ensure progress and give a platform for more pupils to develop the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding within their learning.

An Inskip St. Peter’s pupil is a resilient pupil, who embraces challenge. A pupil who is a strong and confident speaker. A pupil who is capable of putting forward their views with passion and skill. A pupil who is happy to engage in respectful, intelligent debate using their knowledge and understanding.

Children leave Inskip St. Peter’s with a sense of belonging to a loving Christian community, with confidence and the skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, form relationships and become lifelong learners.

Curriculum Impact

Our cohesive curriculum places the learners at the centre and allows them to make connections in their knowledge, skills and understanding that are vital across all subjects. At Inskip St. Peter's we strive to ensure that our children's attainment in core and foundation subjects is in line with or exceeding age-related expectations. We intend that our children will be fully prepared for their next stage of education; ready to contribute positively to society as a whole, encouraging them to be naturally inclusive and responsible global citizens. 

Our comprehensive curriculum and work on promoting social skills, including values, resilience and well-being enables our pupils to become the very best version of themselves.
