At St Anne’s we combine academic rigour with character education. We aim to deliver a curriculum that supports your child to achieve their full potential. We place a high emphasis on the well-being of pupils and have created a curriculum that reflects this. Our core values of Care, Challenge, Inspire and Respect have shaped our learning challenges to ensure that the curriculum explicitly teaches our pupils to understand, care about and act on core ethical values such as respect, citizenship, and responsibility for self and others alongside the National Curriculum.
Our curriculum has the following core objectives:
- For our pupils to become fluent and effective readers so that they read for pleasure, access the wider curriculum, develop a rich vocabulary, and use reading as a tool for further learning.
- For pupils to develop fluency in number and an ability to manipulate numbers to support problem-solving and reasoning.
- To provide our children with secure knowledge and skills across all National Curriculum subjects and to enable them to discover areas of interest.
- To develop resilience and problem-solving skills.
- To have excellent learning behaviours.
- To ensure children understand how to keep themselves safe and healthy, both physically and mentally, to support their long-term well-being.
- To share the life-giving message of Jesus and develop an understanding of, and deep respect for, the beliefs and cultures of everyone in our global society.
Autumn 2022- First 2 weeks whole school learning unit
Learning to Learn
During the first 2 weeks of the Autumn term, we will focus on the learning powers of Co-operating Cooper, Resourceful Remi, Reflective Raheem, and Persevering Poppy- our 4 Learning Superheroes. These four learning powers refer to the collection of traits and skills that enable a person to engage effectively with various learning challenges.
Our aim is to teach our children to "…know what to do when they don't know what to do."
The texts and learning focus on a child’s desire to impact the natural world around them through rewilding and building a sense of community through interacting with nature in shared spaces. Children will increase their knowledge of the importance of plants, trees, and flowers to people and wildlife in our local community.
Where do our roots begin and end?
Our focus this term is care. By learning 'where our roots begin and end?'. We aim to teach you the importance of communities both near and far, living well together and our beautiful world. We have a collective responsibility to care for others and our planet. Our knowledge-based curriculum stimulates learners to become global citizens through caring acts.

Spring 1 2023
Can I challenge myself to... ?
Our curriculum this term focuses on challenging ourselves. When we challenge ourselves we discover new skills, jump into new experiences, and boost our well-being. This mindset of challenge can make it easier to handle failure. If you stumble at a hurdle, you can still be proud that you were brave enough to take the jump. We will ask for help from Perseverance Poppy's learning powers to develop and grow. Let's make our light shine brighter St Anne's.
Spring 2 2023
Can I change the world?
At St. Anne's this half term, we will be following our inspiring curriculum to see how people in the past, present and future can make a difference in our beautiful world. Our Eco Warriors and STEM Ambassadors have organised an exciting Environmental Week that complements this theme. We aim to inspire the next generation of designers, inventors, scientists, and environmental researchers. Our Learning Power this half term is cooperation. We will promote positive interdependence, individual and group accountability, and group processing. These are vital skills for careers in the STEM industries and invaluable social skills.
Could I walk a mile in your shoes?
During our final term, our focus is respect! We will be using Reflective Raheem's ability to reflect and help us to accept and respect each other for who we are, even when we're different or we don't agree. Respect in our relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and well-being. We will also learn how to respect our beautiful world.
