At St George’s we deliver a diverse and exciting curriculum that ignites children’s passion for learning.
We plan for progression, depth and mastery across the curriculum, whilst embedding key skills in core subjects to ensure that the children leave us secondary ready. We continuously evaluate our curriculum, encouraging children to lead their learning and shape topics that are taught.
Our committed staff deliver high quality lessons that challenge even our most able children, whatever the subject may be. The curriculum covers a range of subjects and provides opportunities for academic, art and sporting excellence and contributes well to pupils’ academic achievement, their physical well-being and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
Curriculum maps and learning outcomes for each year group can be found on our website. We always explore exciting opportunities and collaborate with external providers to create special events that help us to celebrate our school and build our wider community.
Parental engagement, homework and e-learning are key to children’s progress. Our homework policy, web resources and parent workshops help us to work together with families to deliver the best education for each individual child.
Our Christian distinctiveness promotes a love of God, a care for each other, a good understanding of keeping safe and is consistent with British Values. There are excellent policies underpinning practice that ensure that pupils have good levels of attainment and are making good progress across the school. Religious Education is an integral aspect of our curriculum. It is our belief that children are a gift from God. We follow the Birmingham Agreed Syllabus for Church of England schools supported by Understanding Christianity and Festival Matters. It is our aim for children to understand the faiths and beliefs of all, demonstrating respect for others, developing a sense of self-identity, personal responsibility and knowledge of how they can contribute to the wider community and world.
Regular assessments identify strengths and areas for development for each child. Our aim is for all children to reach age related expectation with many exceeding. We challenge our children to have high aspirations in order to reach their full potential.
Our inclusive nature as a Church of England School ensures that children who have special educational needs are given additional support in class, in small groups or on an individual basis. Children with additional language needs are also given additional support.
