Curriculum

At St Margaret's we seek to deliver a creative and engaging curriculum which develops the knowledge and skills of the children whilst fostering an understanding of culture and diversity, raising aspirations, encouraging responsibility and giving back to the community. 

Should we be forced to close any classes or the whole school due to exceptional circumstances we have capacity in school to support remote learning within 24 hours. 

2022 - 2023

At. St. Margaret's we deliver a two year rolling curriculum due to our mixed age classes. This academic year we are delivering year A.

 

We deliver our curriculum through a thematic approach wherever possible using 'Big Questions' to support our learning and thinking. These enable us to deliver the national curriculum effectively, whilst also allowing us the space for open ended thinking and spiritual and moral development. These questions are posed by Maggie, our friendly rainbow bird, who likes to know what we are learning and how much we have learnt! 

 

Throughout a term, science, history and geography are blocked and taught using curriculum days. We will take one day a week where we explore a topic in greater depth which really allows us to deepen our understanding. Within each term we also have a 'we are explorers' week. During this week, we may go out for trips or engage in immersive experiences in school. 

 

Below, you can find our curriculum map and a clear outline of the topic blocking calendar.
