Our Curriculum Cornerstones
Our curriculum is based on five cornerstones which underpin every lesson, every interaction, and every experience our children have during their time at St. Matthew’s.
is the cornerstone on which future success is built. Through accessing our broad and enriched curriculum, our children will grow in self-confidence and realise the importance of self-acceptance. Our curriculum will offer all children the opportunity to shine whether it be through the arts, STEM or through sport.
brings people together. Through focusing on the development of communication skills, we will be empowering our pupils and enhancing their ability to collaborate with peers and to convey their thoughts and feelings in an age-appropriate way.
is experimenting, growing, taking risks, making mistakes and having fun. Our curriculum is designed to inspire our children to look at things in different ways and to challenge their notions of what is possible.
is what makes life interesting and overcoming it is what makes life meaningful. Not only will our children face and embrace challenges through our curriculum, they will be encouraged to challenge the status quo so that they can become leaders of the future.
is inevitable. Our curriculum is dynamic so that it reflects the constancy of change, both within the individual, and in the world. Our children will learn that change is good and that it should be embraced and not feared.
