The Learning Journey
Part of our mission is to enable all children to achieve according to their individual abilities. We want them to have an educational experience that takes them on a journey of discovery and encourages them to continue learning, long after the lesson has been delivered.
At St Alfege with St Peter's we follow the National Curriculum Programme of Study which we have mapped out to ensure there is full coverage. Through our curriculum we aim to ensure that each year, our children build on the skills and knowledge they have learnt so that by the time they leave us they have a developed a sound understanding of a range of subject areas.
Lessons are planned with St Alfege children in mind. Teachers take into consideration the cultural diversity of the children in their class and ensure the learning planned reflects this. Educational visits and visitors to school enhance children's learning and provide children with opportunities to develop and enrich their cultural capital.
We are very fortunate to be located in the heart of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site and we make the most of being surrounded by historic buildings with regular visits to the Maritime Museum, Greenwich Park and trips along the Thames.
Our termly curriculum map outlines what each year group will be covering.
At St Alfege with St Peter's RE is a core subject. Please visit the RE page for more information.
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
PSHE lessons help children to learn aspects such as how to develop good relationships with others, how to look after themselves and how to stay healthy. We ensure children understand the importance of being honest about how they are feeling and know who to talk to if they need help. This learning is developed through visitors such as the NSPCC and financial education workshops.
We understand how important technology is in everyday life and children develop this understanding from very early on. In the Early Years children get to know that technology is all around them as they develop their knowledge and understanding of the world. As they move through the school, learning is developed so that children understand the intricacies of control modelings, develop their word processing and multi-media skills and learn how to safely interact with others whist using a range of online applications.
History, Geography, Art and Design and Design and Technology
These subjects are taught by way of a topic each term. Please visit the Topic Friday page for more information.
As part of our Enrichment Programme we have specialist teachers delivering music, dance and Spanish lessons. We also work with an experienced PE coach to ensure our teachers develop the skills needed to deliver great PE lessons.
Information regarding our core subjects and our EYFS curriculum can found on the specific subject pages.
