Our Curriculum

The staff and Governors at King Street believe that offering the best curriculum to our children is of the highest importance. A stimulating and engaging curriculum motivates learners, provokes curiosity and ensures that the learning is fun. We aim to ensure that we build upon children’s thirst for information and we are very proud to have developed a curriculum which stimulates our children into asking searching questions, shapes their learning and enables them to develop into independent thinkers and learners. We realise the importance of every minute of every day that they spend with us, and fill it with experiences that ‘think outside the box’ in their creativity and innovation. 

Developing the holistic child is of upmost importance and, with this in mind, our broad and balanced curriculum encompasses academic subjects, sport, music and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education. We use the outdoors as an opportunity to show children that learning is not contained to a classroom but that the environment is a rich adventure playground.

We are particularly proud of the respect and care that our children show for one another, the environment and the community around us.
We provide a wide range of activities and opportunities for our children to ensure they make progress academically, socially, physically and morally. We endeavour, through our school curriculum, to stimulate our pupils’ interests and imagination and motivate them through a high standard of teaching and learning to realise their potential and achieve success.

Our community is at the heart of our teaching and learning, and encourage involvement with parents, the local churches, and businesses, amongst others, to add an extra dimension to our children’s learning.
Throughout the school opportunities are regularly taken to extend the curriculum beyond our statutory requirements. These include:

Visitors, musicians, and themed assemblies by visitors.

Use of the outside classroom area, locality/wider environment.

Educational visits, trips to museums and other places of interest.

Parental support in classrooms.

Class trips and whole school trips to places of interest connected with the curriculum.

Residential visits.
