At St. Michael’s, we follow the National Curriculum which is a blueprint used by schools to ensure that teaching standards are universally consistent.
To find out more about the National Curriculum, click the link below:
As part of the National Curriculum the children in Key Stages 1 and 2 are taught compulsory subjects such as: English, Maths, Science, Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music and Physical Education. All schools also have to teach Religious Education, though parents have the right to withdraw children for all or part of the Religious Education curriculum. In addition, schools are advised to teach Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship, together with at least one Modern Foreign Language.
Schools are free to plan how the National Curriculum fits with their particular strengths and introduce other activities that extend the learning experience for their pupils. To this end, we deliver the requirements of the National Curriculum through our own bespoke ‘Questioning Curriculum’ which in turn is underpinned by our key skills curriculum map.
