At Rainford CE Primary School, we have developed a curriculum which is focused on equipping our children with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to love learning, develop character and be successful in life. We aim to develop our Christian values of love, joy, peace, perseverance, justice, forgiveness and friendship throughout our curriculum.
We have four main areas that influence all our teaching and learning to help prepare our children for life in the diverse and ever changing modern world:
Develop our children’s learning
To develop the appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum and beyond, so that children can flourish, reach and exceed their potential academically, physically and artistically.
Develop our children’s learning behaviours
To equip our children with the learning behaviours that will enable them to become independent and resilient learners who have the confidence to embrace new challenges and overcome them.
Develop our children’s spiritual and moral development
To foster our children’s spiritual and moral development so that they can understand the meaning and significance of faith, experience God’s love and develop the spirituality to enable them to live out our Christian values of love, joy, peace, friendship, forgiveness, perseverance and justice and learn to respect and care for God’s creation.
Develop our children into positive and healthy citizens
To develop our children's ability to value themselves as a unique individual with special qualities and strengths developing self-discipline and honesty; taking responsibility for their own actions and appreciating their ability to make a positive difference in the world; to develop our children's ability to appreciate, respect and work cooperatively with others, recognising similarities and celebrating differences.
