Welcome to the curriculum section of the St George's website.
At St George's Primary School, your child’s learning is taken from the National Curriculum and a Wirral-agreed syllabus for religious education. The Curriculum aims to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve; to prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. Through their learning experiences, our pupils are also encouraged to further their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Some of our best learning takes place outside of the classroom environment, it also occurs during playtimes. We encourage our children to make full use of the facilities on site. Lessons may take place in the ICT suite, the science lab, the sports hall, the Anglo-Saxon camp, the forest school area or on the field. Similarly, we take our children on visits which will enrich their learning experience. Such visits may be planned to deepen their understanding of a particular subject or to stimulate interest in a new theme of study. We want our pupils to engage with the best possible resources and we are so fortunate to have some of the world's greatest museums, buildings and galleries on our doorstep.
We fully appreciate your support as we work together to educate the citizens of the future. In our welcoming and inclusive school, we strive to be the best in everything we do. Our learners need to develop the knowledge and emotional literacy that will enable them to become fully equipped to cope with the challenges of adult life. Our curriculum reflects this by promoting mental health and well-being, having high ambition for all and encouraging hard thinking. Our curriculum has been sequenced logically to give pupils the best possible access to new learning; for example, our historical studies follow a chronological order from EYFS to Year 6 and our geographical learning starts closest to home and then expands world-wide. We share key knowledge with families at the start of each new term (through year group newsletters), in order that conversations at home can deepen school-based learning. We place value on oracy, wanting our pupils to become articulate citizens.
Please speak to your child's class teacher if you would like any further information about our curriculum. While annual curriculum overviews are published within this section of the website, termly information may be found on your child's year group page (within the 'Year Groups' menu).
This section is designed to ensure that:
