Curriculum Statement of Intent
Our aim is to provide our children with a curriculum which equips them with the tools to be confident, questioning and inspired for now and for the future.
At Stepney Greencoat every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our diverse school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values to prepare them for life beyond our school.
At Stepney Greencoat CE Primary School the curriculum is centred around our school vision as a Christian school:
Learning Together for Life, Jesus said, ‘Love one another as I have loved you’ John 15:12, New Testament (‘Injil’)
Learning: At Stepney Greencoat we recognise that language and vocabulary are central to good learning. Our curriculum is designed to build on young children’s emerging language skills so that when children leave our school they are; confident, articulate, possess a wide and interesting personal vocabulary bank and are able to decipher and interpret unfamiliar words and phrases.
Together: In our small school community we value the partnerships we have with our families. We recognise that when children are supported in their learning by their parents this is highly beneficial. Our curriculum is built to enable parents and carers to be actively engaged in their child’s learning and for all parties to feel confident and comfortable. This involves us providing opportunities for parents to learn alongside their children, workshops for parents, after school clubs which parents can attend with their children and parents volunteering in school events.
Life: Our curriculum aims to provide our children with a richness in life experiences through visits and visitors. The curriculum exploits the location of our school in the capital city of the UK and aims to give our children an understanding of the greatness of our home city and beyond. When children leave our school we hope they have an interest and enthusiasm for the world beyond their own doorstep.
Our school values of; love, trust, truth, perseverance, respect and friendship are central to promoting positive attitudes to learning and to each other.
Children leave our school with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to apply all that they have learnt at our school to become lifelong learners.
We value each child as an individual and aim to meet each learner at their point of need. Our broad and balanced curriculum alongside our clear, graduated approach to identifying additional needs, allows us to support all pupils to engage with learning.
