St Peter's School Curriculum

Our School Curriculum

Classroom environments, resources and educational visits and visitors are all planned to stimulate and challenge children in order to provide a context for effective learning. Individual and group work is encouraged so that children may discover answers to their own questions through observation, experimentation and guidance by their teacher.

As teachers, it is our aim to establish what children can do in order to build on their existing understanding. Within each class, children will be grouped in different ways, for different activities or subjects, in order to make teaching and learning most effective. Children will be expected to work at their own level of attainment and study skills will be developed through the use of reference material, including the internet, and other sources.

Subjects will be taught in their own right, but will sometimes support the development of another subject as well. In this way the school curriculum will cover the National Curriculum subjects.

Added to this is Religious Education. The personal development of our pupils is also vitally important to us and we therefore include moral, social, cultural, community and health issues in our teaching.

Religious Education and Worship

We are an Academy, of religious character having converted from a Church of England Controlled School. We are proud of our links with the local church of St Peter's, Wrockwardine, and as such, we aim to develop our school practice in accord with Christian principles. As well as Christianity, we respect and explore other major world faiths through our teaching and shared worship.

Religious Education is taught from the locally agreed syllabus for Telford and Wrekin. In addition, we encourage children to develop understanding, care and respect towards people with beliefs different to their own.

Parents do have the right to withdraw their children from RE and collective worship.
