St Mildred's Curriculum

Curriculum Overview


We believe in creating a colourful, rich, challenging and fun learning environment.  If children are happy they will want to learn.


We have high expectations for all our children and do everything possible to allow them to fulfil their potential.


English and Maths are taught daily in a variety of formats.


We also provide a broad and balanced creative curriculum that meets the requirements of the National Curriculum.  The following subjects are covered in a range of stimulating and exciting topics chosen by the children.


Science, RE, ICT, PE, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music, Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education and Art.


We encourage creative thinking across the curriculum and believe in the view of Margaret Mead:


"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think."


In recent years, a great deal has been discovered about how we learn, not least in the developing knowledge of how our brain works.


We recognise learning styles:  visual, auditory and kinaesthetic and ensure that lessons are planned and delivered in a way that actively engages all learners.


We want to encourage self motivation, high self esteem and a personal responsibility for, and interest in learning.
