'Let all that you do be done in love'
1 Corinthians 16:14
At St Anne's we strive to 'develop the 'whole child spiritually, mentally and physically within a caring, Christian environment' by helping them to:
-Love Learning and
-Love themselves and others.
This is realised through our curriculum and all that we do. The curriculum is the sum of all children’s experience at school. The curriculum seeks to secure for all pupils irrespective of gender, cultural, religious or social background entitlement to a number of areas of learning, creating lasting experiences for all. It also seeks to develop skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for pupils’ self fulfilment and development as active and responsible citizens.
As we consider, 'Let all that you do be done in Love' - we have high aspiration for the children in terms of the knowledge and skills they acquire in order to make a positive contribution to the world in which we live. From early years, we want to instil a love of learning, creating building blocks and sequenced learning to ensure progress is made and knowledge is retained.
Above all, we want the children to encounter a range of opportunities and experiences, developing their cultural capital with visits and visitors and enhancing their learning experience during their learning journey here at St Anne's.
We follow an EYFS long-term plan for our youngest children and then use a topic cycle, which is laid out, in our long term plan. This broad overview is broken down further in year group overviews that clearly show the progression of knowledge and skills needed for each subject.
