Creative Curriculum

The Creative Curriculum at Steeton Primary School encompasses all core and foundation subjects and enables us to provide a high standard of teaching and learning.

We aim to foster a life-long love of learning, through adopting a highly practical, skills based cross-curricular approach. Our Creative Curriculum aims to deliver an engaging, exciting and relevant twenty-first century education that will equip our children with the skills required to be independent and responsible citizens.

Our curriculum aims to develop caring and responsible citizens who:

  • have essential learning skills in literacy, numeracy, science and ICT
  • are secure in their values and beliefs
  • respect others
  • recognise responsibilities as a global community
  • have a sense of worth, purpose and personal identity
  • are able to challenge justice
  • make informed choices
  • can handle conflict
  • have enquiring minds
  • can communicate well
  • are able to learn independently and with others
  • are able to embrace new and future technologies
  • are creative and resourceful
  • work co-operatively
  • develop problem solving skills
  • use and apply and transfer skills to differing situations
  • are confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • can relate to others and form good relationships
  • know how to sustain and improve the environment and take into account the needs of present and future generations when making choices.

We aim to deliver this through:

  • Embedding Every Child Matters through teaching units on healthy living, community, and citizenship
  • Developing a sense of community and belonging, contributing to our local community and global community through direct interaction.
  • Equipping children with skills for life, through practical work and by applying literacy, numeracy and ICT skills
  • Providing opportunities for children to broaden their outlook on life
  • Making learning more meaningful, by putting it into context
  • Holding a flexible time-tabling approach to make space for true depth of study
  • Reducing the number of topics covered within a school year and establishing cross-curricular links so that more time and space is given to in-depth study
  • Building on their achievements, of the Early Years Foundation Stage – From the three prime areas of learning.
    • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
    • Communication and Language
    • Physical Development
  • And the four Specific Areas:
    • Literacy
    • Mathematics
    • Knowledge of the world
    • Expressive arts and design
  • Listening to pupil voice and involving pupils in planning and decision making.
  • Involving parents in open afternoons and theme days
  • Bringing learning to life through visits, visitors and theme days.
  • Ensuring progression by building on what children already know through the use of Assessment For Learning techniques
  • Working with members of the local and global community
