At St Mark’s Primary School we believe that all our children have the right to a broad and balanced curriculum that is exciting and relevant and that will equip them with the key skills and knowledge needed in order to achieve their full potential. We are continually developing the curriculum that we provide for our children. Our main aim is to provide exciting, stimulating and child-led projects which the children become fully absorbed in using a cross-curricular approach. We strive to encompass as many curriculum subjects into each project, making them relevant and meaningful for our children.
Children in the Foundation Stage follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. They are supported in the four specific areas:
Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world and Expressive arts & design.
Through the above areas, three prime aspects are strengthened and applied:
Communication & Language, Physical Development & Personal, Social and emotional development.
Key Stage 1 and 2
All year groups follow the statutory guidance provided in the National curriculum which was introduced in 2014. Objectives for each year group are provided below. Our RE curriculum is taught in accordance with the agreed syllabus Awareness, Mystery and Value 2016 from North Somerset and the Diocese of Bath and Wells following the 'Understanding Christianity' guidance.
