At All Saints’ we aim to excite our children about learning and to give them an appreciation that learning is a life-long process that can make a difference to their lives as children and in the future. We endeavour to provide a broad, balanced, rich and vivid curriculum which promotes a love of learning and high standards.
Central to our curriculum is an understanding that to be successful children need to learn skills such as; cooperation, friendship, integrity, caring, courage, curiosity, perseverance, flexibility, effort, risk taking problem solving and organisation. We try to ensure that every moment is used and encouraged as a learning opportunity whether it is learning a new aspect of mathematics, learning how to perform in front of others, learning how to resolve a friendship difficulty or learning to contribute to a whole school project.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At All Saints’ we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report.
Further information about what each class is learning can be found in Our Classes.
Progress and Achievements
Careful records of each child’s work, progress and achievements are kept and reviewed in accordance with the requirements of the National Curriculum. The teaching staff are always willing to discuss children’s work and progress with parents. In addition Parents’ Evenings are arranged for the Autumn and Spring terms. An end of year written report is prepared for parents in July of each year and information about progress and attainment is sent out each term.
Feel free to look at our Class Blogs for further information about what the children have been learning this year! You can always follow us on Twitter too @AllSaintsRC to keep up to date with what is going on in school!

Charges for School Activities
In order to meet the requirements of the 1988 Education Reform Act, schools must ensure that parental contributions to any activity which takes place during the school day, are ‘voluntary’. Our practice is to try to subsidise educational visits when we can. Parents will appreciate however that without their voluntary contributions the proposed activities may not take place. For more information, please see our Charging Policy.
Children are expected to read at home daily and to practise their tables. Remember, each child has got a Times Table Rockstars account that they can access at home!
In Reception, the new sounds that the children learn are sent home. From Year One, pupils are usually given literacy and numeracy homework weekly. This should take up to 15-20 minutes to complete (depending on the age of the child). We may, on occasions, request children to follow up work done in school. This may be to complete a particular task given at school, find something out at home, read more about a particular topic, or have extra practice in perhaps spelling or times tables. As well as reinforcing classroom learning, this homework is intended to develop the children’s organisational skills in preparation for secondary school. Junior children have a planner to record homework and other events. Parents are welcome to make comments or send messages through their child’s planner. If your child would like more work to do at home, they are always welcome to carry out their own independent research on their current topic.
We expect you to give your child every encouragement and support their efforts. A cheerful, positive attitude on your part will ensure that homework does not cause undue stress and anxiety for you or your child. Parental interest in children’s work is greatly appreciated, and the willingness to give time and effort at home is valued highly in school.
