The Curriculum at East Bridgford St Peter’s CE Academy aims to provide Beyond Expectation opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and Take Care in the wider world. There is a high focus on developing children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding. St Peter’s strives for ‘life in all its fullness John10:10 and aims to ensure that children are well prepared for life in Modern Britain.
St Peter’s provides a highly inclusive environment where we want all learners to enjoy and achieve (in and out of school) in their education and to make progress in all areas of learning. Pupils at all levels are helped to Aspire to their potential (we like to say, be the best you can be, not the best in the world but the best version of you). Those who are most able are challenged and supported through appropriate extension activities and the challenge to, Adventure on... through self-discovery. Those who may struggle are encouraged and given support to embed skills, to develop at their own pace or simply to learn in a style that best suits their individual needs.
St Peter’s focus on curriculum development is always evolving and being carefully designed to ensure coverage and progression. Our Curriculum intends to provide pupils with memorable experiences, in addition to diverse and rich opportunities from which children can learn and develop a range of transferable skills. The children's own community is frequently used as a starting point for engaging interest. A primary focus of our curriculum is to raise aspirations by the message of Work Hard, engender a sense of Integrity and Be Proud in achievement, and providing a purpose and relevance for learning.
Music, creative arts and sporting excellence has a high profile at St Peter’s. Our extensive range of musical and drama performances alongside high sporting achievement is recognised year on year by various stakeholders.
To promote physical health and well-being, a range of clubs gives learners an opportunity to access a wide variety of sports clubs after school hours and during lunch times.
