Our Curriculum Vision - St Bart's approach
Achieve Believe Celebrate
with faith anything is possible!
At St Bartholomew's Church of England Academy, we ignite children's passion for learning through developing their curiosity, deepening connections as well as challenging and inspiring them by creating exciting and memorable experiences!
We enrich their learning through developing their knowledge to support them to be problem solvers, risk takers and courageous to instill independence, self belief, high aspirations and a thirst for life long learning. We help them to develop the knowledge and strategies which will help them to be successful in their future learning.
We provide exciting and fun opportunities for children to celebrate and share their learning with the whole school community and beyond, so that they will feel a real sense of accomplishment. We believe that providing children with a broad range of engaging memorable experiences through visitors, visits and community partnerships as well as working together with parents and carers will help to underpin and enrich their learning, develop cultural capital and further life skills.
Our core values are at the very heart of our school have been developed collaboratively by the whole school community. The core values are interwoven throughout all learning. We help our children to grow through understanding the core values so that they develop in character, are reflective and self aware - emotionally, morally and spiritually. We also help them to understand how to stay physically healthy and look after their mental wellbeing. Our school values support them to grow and develop into respectful global citizens who will make a difference in communities and inspire others.
Our wider curriculum covers statutory objectives from the National Curriculum with the key knowledge, skills and vocabulary sequentially mapped out and built upon over time. Children are encouraged to re-visit prior learning and then delve even deeper, building on the knowledge taught progressively each year. We are confident that this will lead all children at our school to flourish – both academically and personally, throughout our curriculum, within their school life and beyond.
At St Bartholomew’s CE Academy, we have created a culture for pedagogical dialogue. This means that we are always striving to create a high quality curriculum which is built upon evidence led research. The principles of our professional development motivate staff, develops teaching strategies and embed practice.
