St Stephens Community Primary School School
What is the curriculum like at our School?
At St Stephens C.P. School, we aim to tailor education to individual need, interest and aptitude so as to fulfil every child's potential. Every pupil will have access to a rich, broad, balanced, differentiated and, above all, stimulating curriculum.
We deliver a thematic creative curriculum that leads to high standards in attainment and progress across the school whilst also broadening children’s experiences, exciting them about learning and engendering curiosity and a desire to learn more.
We believe in the importance of teaching children how to be good learners through BLP: Resourcefulness, Resilience, Reflectiveness and Reciprocity. As a result, behaviour for learning (perseverance, concentration, being confident to take a risk without fear of failure etc.) is a strong focus so that children are well equipped to deal with the challenges of life in the 21st century. We endeavour to enable children to become lifelong learners and face the ever changing global world.
Children’s progress is carefully monitored through the tracking of assessment and, where children are found to need additional support, we have a range of catch up interventions to help them. These include a Reading support TA and the use of Thrive to help children with emotional difficulties. Moreover, we put additional activities into the curriculum for children with a particular talent in a subject area to help them to reach excellence.
Sex and relationship education is taught in line with the Sex Education policy agreed by governors.
Religious Education follows the locally agreed syllabus for Cornish schools.
An extensive range of extra-curricular activities are offered. These include football, cooking, netball, drama, choir, ICT, forest school and science. The school is proud of its provision in this area.
