Our ‘school curriculum’ is the child’s whole experience at St Bartholomew’s CE (VC) Primary School. Our curriculum ensures that every child is given the opportunity to grow and develop to  achieve their God given potential. We ensure that our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014

Curriculum Intent

At St Bartholomew’s, we value the uniqueness of each individual child, recognising and nurturing their potential for learning. Our aim, through our tailor-made curriculum, is to ensure every child is inspired to be the best they can be, to instil Christian values that will be carried with them through life’s journey and to inspire them to make a positive contribution to the community.

We believe that our curriculum provides the right balance between understanding and using knowledge as well as developing and applying skills, leading to better understanding and progression for the pupils.


Our curriculum has been designed with the following intent:

  • Safeguarding and promoting the well-being of both children and adults so that all know that they will be cared
  • Celebrating diversity, recognise individual needs and provide fair opportunities for all.
  • Ensuring that everyone is given the opportunity to flourish and develop confidence and independence, to enable them to be the best they can be and achieve their god given potential.
  • Encouraging everyone to take responsibility for their own actions and develop the ability to persevere.
  • Providing a Christian, caring community for all, where there are respectful relationships based on friendship, compassion, kindness, honesty and forgiveness, so that everyone lives well together.
  • Ensuring RE and Worship is central to the life of the school, to encourage the spiritual development of all children and adults.
  • Delivering a well-taught, creative, relevant, broad and balanced curriculum, which inspires the children to see God’s world as a place of wonder, and develops a love of learning.
  • The curriculum content has been carefully chosen ensuring children can build on their knowledge at each stage. In this way, the knowledge in the curriculum is cumulative, constructing firm foundations from which children can progress and develop deeper conceptual understanding and subject-specific skills over time.
  • Curriculum coherence ensures that teaching does not jump from topic to topic, but enables children to develop knowledge over time, as well as a love of subjects. Subject content is crucial to this approach- the rich content of the curriculum inspires children and plants the seeds for a lifetime of learning.
  • Working collaboratively with parents, learners, members of the community, the church, educational partners and other professionals to ensure all children receive the very best start to their learning journey.
