Curriculum

'Let your light shine before others so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in Heaven.'  Matthew 5 v 16 

At Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School, we want our children to be shining lights in  the world. To enable this, we offer a curriculum that has three core values at its heart:  

• achieving academic excellence,  

• inspiring a curiosity for learning,  

• developing personal and spiritual attributes, passions and talents. 

Our aim is to produce globally-aware citizens who are knowledgeable about the world in  which they live and their footprint upon it. Our young people will value justice and they will  be keen to take social action, courageously speaking up for themselves and for those  around them. Our children will be resilient and creative, finding ways to make the world a  better place. Our Christian values are a golden thread through all we teach: respect,  responsibility, tolerance, integrity, courage and perseverance. 

Our curriculum is built upon five key foundations: 

Subject Knowledge 

Through research and quality professional development, our teachers are experts in the  subjects that they are teaching. Their passion and depth of understanding will ensure that  the children are enthused and inspired by their new found knowledge. Each year of  teaching will build upon the prior learning set down. 

Metacognition 

‘Metacognition’ is the process of thinking about thinking. In all our learning, we provide  children with the metacognitive tools (or ‘thinking’ tools) that they need to organise their  understanding. By engaging with our curriculum, we will teach our children to become  critical and resilient thinkers who are not only confident to ask questions, but who are  informed and articulate enough to ask the right questions.  

Polished Products 

Throughout the curriculum, children’s learning will work towards a purposeful final product.  We believe that there is much learning in the process of evaluating and editing. Carefully  considered feedback from adults enables children to make substantial progress when  planning, developing, honing and producing a finished product.  

Oracy and Vocabulary 

A love of language and effective communication is central to our curriculum. We ensure  that our children speak with enthusiasm from their earliest years and rapidly acquire the skills  that they need to be confident, but considered and considerate orators.  

Experiences 

Providing our children with memorable experiences is key to our curriculum offer. We ensure  that every area of learning is supplemented with visits and trips, encounters and adventures  which will equip them with the confidence, knowledge and skills they need for a successful,  happy and productive life. 

Every subject in our curriculum has been carefully designed. The documents on this page  provide intent, implementation and impact statements for each area of learning.
