'The school provides a broad range of topics and themes that interest pupils but which also strongly support the development of their literacy and numeracy skills. An increasing number of clubs and additional activities, including music tuition and visits to museums and art galleries, make pupils’ learning meaningful. Pupils are given many opportunities to develop their understanding of wider British values and institutions, as well as those of their own community, and are well prepared for life in modern Britain.'

Curriculum Intent Statement
At Saint Andrew’s Primary School, our curriculum is designed to inspire our children to become inquisitive, reflective individuals with an enthusiasm for learning. Our Christian values of love, trust and wisdom, and a thorough consideration of our children’s well-being and happiness is at the heart of everything we do.
We provide a range of learning experiences that enable children to develop their appreciation and awareness of the world around them as well as building their interpersonal skills and resilience. Our cross-curricular approach enables our children to make meaningful links with their learning and ensures that every member of our Saint Andrew’s family is supported in, and encouraged to build strong relationships, celebrate diversity, encourage respect and build a sense of community. We enable children to take on key roles within the school developing a sense of responsibility, and we encourage active participation in our wider community through involvement with local events and organisations.
Our embedded Christian values, PSHE lessons and whole school worship assemblies promote positive attitudes which reflect the values and skills needed for future learning and success in modern Britain. Children leave Saint Andrew’s Primary School with a strong sense of belonging and are proud that they have developed the confidence and skills needed to be learners for life.
Mathematics at Saint Andrew's
Mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. Our aim is to provide a high-quality mathematics education therefore providing a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. In order to achieve this, pupils are encouraged to think mathematically, to apply their knowledge to a range of different activities and are given the opportunity to reason and problem solve.
The National Curriculum sets out year-by-year programmes of study for key stages 1 and 2. This ensures continuity and progression in the teaching of mathematics. In addition to this, at St Andrew’s AET maths is used to aid planning, curriculum coverage and progression for all.
Please see below for the unit overviews for each year group.
This page will be updated in due course with our new exciting curriculum however, should you have any questions regarding the curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
