18. Our Curriculum

We aim to provide a quiet, purposeful working environment where children follow a creative curriculum whilst making the fullest possible use of our school’s central location in Canterbury.
We have been working hard to develop the National Curriculum through a topic based learning approach. 
Our curriculum comprises of all learning and other experiences that we plan with our pupils.  At St Peter's we organise our curriculum into areas of learning for planning, teaching and monitoring purposes: English, Mathematics, Science, Religious Education, Creative Arts (Art, Music and Design Technology), Health and Wellbeing (PE, PSHE and Citizenship), Humanities (Geography and History), Computing and Languages. 
 In all areas of the curriculum we prioritise creativity to motivate and enthuse children and provide them with the team skills which will prepare them to make the fullest contribution in life. At the beginning of each topic, the children and their teacher work together to plan their topics, deciding together on their learning journey. Class teachers send out a termly letter outlining the areas of work which the children will be involved in during the coming term. These are also posted on class pages on our school website. If you have any queries about the curriculum the most useful person to talk to is the class teacher or the Headteacher.
