The Core Curriculum

Religious Education

RE is provided in all classes and, as required by the Bishops of England and Wales, 10% of curriculum time is allocated to teaching RE.

The programme in use, as required by the Diocese of Middlesbrough, is 'Come and See'.

The programme is delivered through a series of themes:

Autumn Term themes are developed in the light of an understanding of Creation:

  •     Family «Domestic Church
  •     Belonging«Baptism/Confirmation
  •     Loving«Advent/Christmas

Spring Term themes are developed in the light of an understanding of Incarnation:

  •     Community«Local Church
  •     Relating«Eucharist
  •     Giving«Lent/Easter

Summer Term themes are developed in the light of an understanding of Redemption and the work of the Holy Spirit:

  •     Serving«Pentecost
  •     Inter-relating«Reconciliation
  •     World«Universal Church

Twice each year there is a two-week study on other religions (Judaism and Islam)

A programme of Sex and Relationships Education, ‘A Journey in Love’, is also in use throughout the school.

Parents have a statutory right to withdraw children from lessons in Religious Education, but we do not recommend this, as RE takes place not only in the RE lesson; it pervades the whole ethos of the school. Parents who do not wish their child to take part in RE lessons probably need to consider whether All Saints is the right school for their child, as there is a wide choice of both community and faith schools in the local area.

Science

Science is taught through a mixture of cross-curricular topic work and discrete Science lessons to deliver the 2014 National Curriculum Programme of Study for Science in KS1 and KS2. In Class 1 we support children in the “Understanding World” area of learning and development (Statutory Framework for EYFS).  
We aim to develop in pupils, curiosity, enjoyment, skills and a growing understanding of science knowledge, through an approach in which pupils raise questions and investigate the world in which they live. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
We feel it is vitally important to promote positive attitudes to science through a variety of teaching and learning styles whilst developing and embedding scientific enquiry, ‘Working Scientifically’ skills alongside knowledge and content based learning. Please see our long-term class plans for more details and specific year / termly topics.

Foundation subjects

History, Geography, Music, Art and Design, Design and Technology,

These subjects are taught in each year of the school, mainly through cross-curricular topics.

IT is used across the curriculum in all subjects with Computing being taught in each class in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum.
