Curriculum

At Stanley Primary School we want every child to enjoy school, develop a love of learning and achieve their potential. By the time they move into secondary education, we hope for our children to be well-rounded, confident learners, questioning and curious in their approach to their studies, prepared to take the next step in their educational life.

 

We offer a creative curriculum that is broad and balanced, fun and engaging, tailored to ensure that children have the opportunity to experience success through their time at Stanley. Our cross-curriculum approach endeavours to help the children make connections between subjects to inspire them and embed their learning. English and Maths are taught daily; Science and Foundation subjects during the rest of the week. We are lucky to have an inspiring Living Classroom for outdoor learning. We organise visits, workshops, exhibitions and performances to bring our projects to life and make use of our local environment to establish memorable learning experiences.

 

Everything we do is underpinned by a strong value-driven, whole-school approach, which promotes the moral and social considerations required to be a positive citizen in Britain today. We invite external visitors to lead assemblies and celebrate the diversity of our children by recognising different faith’s festivals and language assemblies to recognise out EAL children.

 

Our curriculum principles

  • All of our children should be literate and we teach the skills of reading and writing in a progressive and engaging way, using structure of engaging textx and drama, ensuring that they can use and apply their knowledge in other subjects.
  • All of our children should be numerate. Our mastery approach to Maths ensures that children build a firm foundation of mathematical skills and are confident and successful in applying them.
  • Scientific and Technological (Computing and Design and Technology) knowledge, enquiry and exploration are important and celebrated with a STEM week
  • Geography and History explore themes and build knowledge to help us understand the society we live in. Our local context is important – with Hampton Court on our doorstep we study The Tudors and the Thames for geography.
  • Music, PE and French are all taught by specialist teachers in KS2 and children have the opportunity to celebrate their expertise through singing festivals and choirs; sports competitions and leagues.
  • Art is integral to projects and celebrated with an annual Arts exhibition
  • RE ensures that our children have an understanding of different faiths
  • Our Values curriculum is embedded in our whole school approach, threaded through assemblies and behaviour management, encompassing such things as a Stanley Memorial Service, caring for the school environment with a green team, taking responsibility through School Council or helping out in the office.
