Curriculum Statement


Our School Vision: Let Your Light Shine

At St Michael’s School we provide a safe, happy and inspiring learning environment based around our core values of love, joy, hope and forgiveness. We celebrate the uniqueness of every child, and encourage them to shine in all they do, preparing them for life’s journey.

Intent: our curriculum ambition

Our curriculum both reflects and delivers our school vision. We want all of our children to be excited and motivated throughout their time at our school, and to develop the skills and knowledge to enable them to make the best possible progress in their learning. As a result our children will shine.

Impact: how do we know if we are successful?

  • Through their learning children will develop a strong understanding of people, community and values.
  • Children will develop the key skills they need to develop their potential, and will achieve well by the end of their time in Primary School, so that they are well-prepared for their next stage of education. This will include a good grounding in STEM activities.
  • Children will have had many opportunities to develop their creative and artistic talents, and they will have had many additional opportunities to shine in their chosen way. This may be through the curriculum, or through the many clubs available.
  • Children will have a strong sense of personal identity and will be able to look forward to leading safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
  • They will have a good understanding of current issues, including sustainability, and will be developing into responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to our local, national and global community.
