Learning to care, caring to learn. All flourishing as Children of God.
Our curriculum is driven by the need to prepare our children for lifelong learning. At Studham Village CE Academy, we offer a rich and vibrant curriculum which is ambitious for all learners.
Through our Christian Faith, we acknowledge our responsibility to all, to enrich lives and show love and respect within our school family.
For with God nothing shall be impossible (Luke 1:37)
Our Curriculum has been designed to ensure each and every child can ' live life in all its fullness' by offering stimulating and awe-inspiring learning experiences with Christian values at its heart.
It is bespoke to the needs of the pupils at Studham Village CE Academy, not only by focusing on appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum, but by modelling our Christian values and by developing individual and collaborative learning experiences, a positive growth mindset, a sense of responsibility and challenges that take them beyond the classroom.
We are a small rural school with a constantly evolving curriculum which responds to the needs of learners and their interests by enhancing learning experiences and raising awareness from the local area to national and global arenas. Thus, we will develop outward looking pupils who are able to engage in learning about themselves and have an understanding of the wider world and its complex cultures.
Ultimately our curriculum is intended to CARE: it will Challenge, be Aspirational, promote Resilience and be Engaging.
Through quality teaching of knowledge, skills and vocabulary across core and foundation subjects, all children will be challenged to be inquisitive, compassionate, courageous and creative learners. They will have opportunities to influence their own learning through age appropriate and progressive themes and topics. Effective learning characteristics including being ambitious, reflective and imaginative will drive teaching and learning.
The impact of the curriculum is monitored though triangulation of outcomes: pupil voice, test/data outcomes, planning, monitoring of books and displays, lesson learning walks and discussions with teaching staff, pupils and parents.
The desired outcomes of the curriculum will ensure that our children will have a confident set of skills, knowledge, expectations and Christian values which can be used to get ahead in education and life more generally. In short they will learn more, remember more, enjoy more and develop more spiritually, socially and emotionally. Thus enabling them to be ready for their next stage in education.
