INTRODUCTION TO OUR CURRICULUM
At All Souls we teach a broad and balanced curriculum which provides pupils with an enriching and engaging educational experience, enabling pupils to grow their knowledge and skills so that they can be the best they can be. Our aim is for all children to become confident, self-motivated and highly engaged learners who achieve their full potential.
Our curriculum has been carefully developed to:
- Grow their knowledge
- Encourage children’s imagination and originality
- Enable children to be active partners in their learning
- Provide child-centred learning with many first-hand experiences
- Allow children to make links and apply their learning across the curriculum
- Develop life-long learning skills which are relevant for an unknown, changing future: resourcefulness, resilience, reflectiveness, reciprocity (good relationships)
- Incorporate a range of teaching strategies and learning styles
- Involve parents and carers where possible
- Extend children’s involvement into the local community and beyond, developing their understanding of environmental and global issues
- Provide thorough coverage of the skills, concepts and knowledge set out in the 2014 National Curriculum programmes of study (Classes 1 to 6) and the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (Nursery and Reception).
We offer a range of different enrichment activities and events in order to ensure we are equipping our children with the knowledge and ‘cultural capital’ to succeed in life. In addition, our enrichment activities and events are in place to further develop the provision of spiritual, moral, social and cultural education of our pupils, as well as the promotion of British Values and the understanding of protected characteristics.
Recent examples of the enrichment opportunities that pupils have participated in, include:
- The Not Forgotten WW1 Project with Westminster Archives, which includes visits to Westminster Archives, The Houses of Parliament and The Cavalry Museum
- The London Eye
- ENO Workshops and trip to The Coliseum to see pupils perform in The Little Vixen
- Count On Us, Mayor of London initiative
- Climate education 5-session workshop for Y5 and Y6
- Museum trips including The Wallace Collection, The British Museum, The Museum of London, Somerset House, The Science Museum and The Natural History Museum
- Residentials to Farms for City Children, Treginnis and Sayers Croft.
- Class visits to London Zoo and Wild Wood in Kent.
- Seaside trip for KS1 to Broadstairs
Over the course of an academic year, the whole school also participates in themed weeks planned to develop a particular aspect of the curriculum in an exciting, interactive way. These have included Anti-Bullying Week, Science Week, Fitness Week and Safety Week.
