At Meriden Church of England Primary School, through an ethos underpinned by the Christian faith and values, we provide the children with a curriculum which is broad and well balanced, encouraging all pupils to live safe, active and healthy lives. Through practical and appropriate learning experiences, we nurture pupils’ sense of curiosity, enquiry, awe and wonder. We promote high expectations and expect pupils to have pride in themselves as learners.
Throughout their time at Meriden, pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills are developed across the curriculum, as well as vocabulary, communication and social skills. Pupils’ artistic and creative talents are valued and promoted alongside design and IT skills; key to life in a fast paced technological society.
By the end of year 6, our pupils, regardless of gender, ability, social background or ethnicity, will have had the experiences needed to develop the academic skills, social, moral and cultural awareness that will enable them be successful lifelong learners, both in secondary school and further into adult life.
We organise our curriculum in groups of subjects rather than individually, and staff work on these areas in teams.
