Our Curriculum Vision at St Hilda’s
At Carleton St Hilda’s we strive to provide high quality education that meets the needs of all children as they move through our school. We believe that every child is a gift from God, and as such brings with them unique talents and characteristics to be nurtured and celebrated. Within our educational family each action made and decision taken is underpinned with Christian values, and this is recognised as a strong characteristic of our school.
We aim to prepare children for the next stage in their educational journey by inspiring an enthusiasm for learning which will continue throughout their lives. We strive to nurture high aspirations in each child, and a motivation for success which they can adapt to the world of work, community and global citizenship. We are dedicated to ensuring that each individual child reaches their full potential.
Our curriculum is designed to give children the opportunity to build on their prior knowledge through a carefully planned sequence of learning steps. We aim to provide breadth and balance of experience, knowledge, skills and understanding in all areas of the national curriculum and beyond, ensuring steady yet challenging progression for all. We take account of each child’s individual skills and interests and develop these through a curriculum which is enriched by a wide range of exciting opportunities.
