St Luke's Primary

St Luke's Curriculum

Whole School Annual Topic Summary

At St Luke’s we have developed a knowledge-endowed curriculum that extends opportunity, opens children’s eyes to the world beyond their immediate environment, instils a sense of well-being, inspires children to keep learning and enables pupils to live happy, healthy and productive lives.

Our Curriculum Plan is intended to give all children, including disadvantaged pupils in particular, the chance to experience places, events and cultures that they might otherwise not have.

In order to achieve this, our curriculum is underpinned by three curriculum drivers, chosen to meet the needs of our pupils:

  • Spiritual and Moral
  • Our Place in the World
  • Communication

Our school values are an integral part of our curriculum and opportunities to develop these are carefully planned. These are known as our Torches values and consist of:

  • Trust
  • Open-minded
  • Respect
  • Caring
  • Honesty
  • Ever-Hopeful
  • Spiritual

Progression has been developed in each subject, allowing pupils to build on what they have learnt previously. This progression is mapped out clearly in our Subject Progression Maps and allows opportunities for purposeful repetition and independent application of knowledge as pupils advance through the school.
