The Curriculum at All Saints Church of England Primary.
Our commitment to high quality teaching and learning is demonstrated through all staff working collaboratively towards common goals in order to “educate” the whole child at our school.
At this School our emphasis is about learning to learn, equipping children with the skills that they need in order to become valued citizens of the future.
The school has developed its own curriculum based on the National Curriculum, local curriculum and the Bath and Wells Diocese Religious Education syllabus. Our curriculum links to our locality, helping provide real experiences relating to the children’s interests and needs which we deliver through a themed approach. This better enables a child to make links between areas of learning and more deeply engage with content.
Within their learning the children experience class, group and individual learning challenges, whilst focusing on the North Somerset Key Skills for Learning.
The quality of our educational provision and delivery has been acknowledged by North Somerset and visitors from Holland, Morocco, Kenya and local schools have come to our school to see the theory in action.
The children’s experiences are further enriched by such activities as concerts, class trips, theatre visits, outings, visitors to assemblies and a variety of extra curricular activities, which include creative dance, multi-sports, craft and art clubs. There is also a residential outdoor pursuits week and a cultural residential for Years 5 & 6.
At Foundation level we follow the recommended Foundation Curriculum.
- Copies of year group Curriculum Plans are available within the Class Folder under the Children's section of the website.
- The two year Curriculum Cycle can be located within Key Information.
Children with Special Needs and/ or a Disability
The curriculum in our school is designed to provide access and opportunity for all children who attend the school. If we think it necessary to adapt the curriculum to meet the needs of individual children, then we do so only after the parents of the child have been consulted. Intervention groups and individual precision teaching is delivered where appropriate. Refer to SEN policy
At All Saints Church of England Primary School, we believe that each child has individual and unique needs. However, some children require more support than others do. If these children are to achieve their full potential, we must recognise this and plan accordingly. We acknowledge that a significant proportion of children will have special educational needs at some time in their school career. Some of these children may require help throughout their time in school, whilst others may need extra support for a short period to help overcome more short term needs. For children with Special Educational Needs and/ or a disability, in addition to the whole school aims, we strive:
- To enable every child to experience success
- To promote individual confidence and a positive attitude
- To ensure that all children, whatever their special educational needs or disability , receive appropriate educational provision through a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and differentiated, that demonstrates coherence and progression in learning. Our school is committed in making reasonable adjustments to meet children’s individual needs
- To give children with special educational needs equal opportunities to take part in all aspects of a school's provision, to involve parents, carers and children themselves in planning and supporting at all stages of the child's development
- To ensure that responsibility held by all staff and Governors for SEND is implemented and maintained.

We believe that children learn best in different ways.
At our school, we provide a rich and varied learning environment, both inside and outside, that allows all children to develop their skills and abilities.
