At Stanton Community Primary School we believe that for children to achieve the very best of their abilities they need to be inspired, excited and interested in what they are learning. Therefore we have worked hard to ensure that our curriculum is relevant and meaningful for all the children as well as covering what is required through the national curriculum.
We use the Power of Reading approach to ensure that high quality children’s literature is at the heart of our curriculum. We use creative teaching approaches that are proven to raise engagement and attainment in both reading and writing.
Our whole school curriculum is focussed around high quality texts which give children opportunities to produce a high standard of writing across the curriculum.
Along with our extensive library we are also fostering a whole school culture that values and fosters the importance of reading for pleasure.
In Maths we teach for Mastery. To find out more about this please click on the link below.
Guy Claxton's Building Learning Powers are embedded throughout all our lessons.
For some subjects it is not always appropriate to link them to the Power of Reading book. Therefore some elements of French, personal, social, health and emotional education, physical education and computing are also taught as discrete subjects.
Religious education is taught through the Suffolk Agreed Syllabus and the school has specific RE days each half term to enable the children to have an extended time to learn about and reflect on different world religions.
Home Learning consists of short daily reinforcement tasks as well as a longer reading comprehension in KS2.
