At Stonham Aspal CE Primary School, we follow the National Curriculum 2014. From the statutory objectives set out in this document we have developed a creative curriculum based around half termly topics/themes. This runs on a two-year rolling programme to ensure broad and balanced coverage for all pupils. The long term plans below outline the themes covered in each term. These are working documents and changes may be made at any time.
We follow the curriculum as set out by the 'National Curriculum 2014'. We are also a Voluntary Aided Church of England School and are supported by the Diocese of St Edmundsbury.
We believe that every child is entitled to enjoy their childhood and celebrate their achievements. We teach the importance of Moral and Christian Values in particular; 'Peace, Kindness, Self-Control, Patience, Faithfulness, and Love' and provide the foundation for tolerance and self-worth. We work with parents, carers and the community to enable children to reach their full potential in an ever changing world. Our lessons prepare children for adulthood as they are meaningful to everyday life and practical situations.
Our curriculum explores the key British Values, for example, in the following ways:
Democracy - School Council, House Teams, and through topics such as 'The Greeks'.
Individual Liberty - School Council, Behaviour Policy and strategies and through topics such as World War One and World War Two.
Mutual Respect and Tolerance - Behaviour Policy and strategies, School Council, Christian Ethos and Values, Life and Learning Skills, Religious Education (where all faiths are taught as we follow the Suffolk RE syllabus) and PSHE.
