Curriculum

Curriculum Intent

The curriculum at St Michael’s is board, balanced and ambitious. It is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first-hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers alongside reflecting their backgrounds, our community and the ever-changing world in which they are growing up. Our vision and values are the golden thread that run through all aspects of our curriculum.

Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our whole school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by strong relationships, the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and our values of Respect, Courage and Perseverance. We provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.  

At St Michael’s we have a curriculum that strives to create children who:
  • Are respectful, thoughtful, helpful and polite
  • Are individuals
  • Have independence and the courage to persevere 
  • Question why and how
  • Are brave, happy and hardworking
  • Who are curious and find joy in learning
  • Are able to work collaboratively
