St Luke's Primary

Curriculum balance

At St Luke's C of E Primary School we carefully design, plan and implement a curriculum to provide balance for every pupil:

It is our underlying belief that every child should feel valued and experience success in a wide range of curriculum areas. We believe that through our curriculum we can have a positive impact on children's self esteem and how they view themselves. It is our aim for every child to feel clever, confident and ready to tackle any challenge that they may face.

We have designed, organised and planned our curriculum to ensure every child receives an appropriate mix of academic and personal development. This means that our teaching places equal importance on core and foundation subjects.

At St Luke's we place high priority on ensuring children's physical and mental well-being. We understand that children will only be successful learners if they are emotionally secure; therefore we carefully design our curriculum and are prepared to be flexible in our approach to teaching in order to ensure that we can meet the needs of pupils and respond to any issues that may arise. Children's physical and mental well-being are as valued and important as academic development.

We carefully monitor children's progress with their personal development and incorporate social, moral and cultural learning into all lessons to ensure that every child is well cared for and supported.

Our balanced approach to the curriculum is by no means at the expense of high standards in the core subject areas. High standards and enabling children to reach or exceed national expectations is of vital importance if they are to succeed in the future.

Our full and rich curriculum, with its excellent range of experiences, ensures that every pupil at St Luke's C of E Primary School makes excellent progress, both academically and personally. Our unique curriculum ensures that every child is given the opportunity to shine and flourish.

With God, all things are possible
