The Curriculum at St Bartholomew's
Our broad and balanced curriculum has been carefully designed to enthuse and engage our children; helping them to develop into confident, well-rounded learners who have the skills, knowledge and personal attributes to succeed in their next stage of education.
We are ambitious for all pupils including disadvantaged and SEND, irrespective of background or ability and we believe that all children are entitled to receive a broad and balanced curriculum. We challenge the children to develop a range of different skills to equip them in later life, including independence, resilience and a determination to succeed. We encourage the children to be curious, so that they develop both a love of learning and a natural interest in the world around them.
Our curriculum has our children at the core of its design; linking together the key skills and essential knowledge detailed in the National Curriculum as well as capturing key elements our children are passionate about. The exciting curriculum we provide helps children to understand who they are and where they live. It helps them learn about their community, the nation and the world in which they are a part of. It deepens their cultural awareness and increases their understanding of history, time and place; driving the children to be inquisitive about what has come before them. They learn about issues facing the world and the importance of caring for their environment.
