Our Curriculum Intent
At St. Andrew's we aim to establish a strong partnership between school, pupils and parents. This section includes information about the curriculum we teach at St. Andrew's.
At St. Andrew's the staff and governors work together to ensure that all of our pupils:
- Celebrate each other's differences, care, love, respect and show kindness to people around them.
- Understand that they are unique, special and that God loves us all.
- Understand the importance of friendship and the need to get along with others.
- Believe in themselves, have confidence in their own abilities and always strive to do their very best in all that they do.
- Have rich learning opportunities and experiences in a wide range of subject areas. Through outdoor learning, making extensive use of our outdoor areas at school, being on the edge of Highfield Country Park, practical activities, visits and trips to places of interest, including the local area and our links with the local community.
- Feel a sense of belonging as part of the St. Andrew's School community and are proud of our school.
- Develop a sense of responsibility in caring for God's World and encourage others to do the same.
- Develop resilience through understanding the importance of learning from our mistakes.
- Experience what it feels like to succeed through high teacher expectations and for all of our pupils to have achieved their very best during their time at St. Andrew's.
- To develop a sense of curiosity through asking questions and a love of learning and become life-long learners.
- Gain a greater understanding of the wider world and to develop into caring and responsible young citizens, working for a fairer and more just society.
