Value, nurture, protect and challenge.
Our Phonics Scheme is Read, Write, Inc and our reading schemes are Bug Club and Oxford Reading Tree.
This is what Ofsted said about our curriculum.
"The school provides an interesting curriculum, which involves pupils in determining some of the topics they study".
"The curriculum and the school’s values underpin provision for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. This is enhanced by a range of trips and visitors to the school and learning about world religions. The impact of its drive for equality of opportunity can be seen in the support for disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, pupils eligible for the pupil premium and others identified for extra support".
Collective Worship And The Teaching of Religious Education
Provost Williams C.E. Primary School and Nursery is proud of its links with the Church of England. Christian based assemblies are held every day and children are encouraged to develop a reflective spirituality. Prayers are said every day. Collective worship is wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character. However, pupils are given opportunities to explore other world faiths.
Our teaching of Religious Education encourages children to explore personal values and beliefs whilst fostering their interest in an understanding of a range of beliefs and customs.
We follow the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) – agreed syllabus for education. We acknowledge the diversity of faiths that are represented in our society. We celebrate all the major festivals of the Christian calendar.
RE enables children to understand how and why people live differently from each other and to respect their right to do so.
