Whole School Curriculum

“A focus on improving pupils’ fluency of reading and understanding of challenging texts is developing pupils’ reading skills well.” OFSTED July 2017

The curriculum at St Augustine’s consists of all teaching, learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. The National Curriculum comprises a large part of our wider school curriculum. While the aims and structure of the National Curriculum are set at national level, our curriculum does not remain static. It consistently responds to changes in society, both local and national, and changes in the nature of schooling itself. Teachers at St Augustine’s, both individually and collectively, reappraise their teaching in response to the changing needs of our pupils and the impact of economic, social and cultural change. We know that children at St Augustine’s will only flourish if our curriculum offer successfully adapts to the demands and needs of our context.
