Curriculum is derived from the Latin word ‘currere’ and our curriculum is therefore the ‘path’ we want our children to take on their journey with us through All Saints.
We want to stimulate children’s natural curiosity through our knowledge-based curriculum and encourage each and every child in our care to develop a passion and a love for learning. We want our children to not only be inspired by what they are taught, but also to be able to inspire others with what they can do. With our literacy-rich approach across the curriculum, we seek to encourage all our children to be confident, critical thinkers who are reflective about their own learning and open to the idea of challenge and new possibilities. We aim to guide all our children towards becoming compassionate, responsible individuals who respect and celebrate the cultural diversity of their local community and the wider world around them.

We have recently adopted and embraced a new English curriculum using 'The Literary Curriculum'. This scheme is centred around rich, diverse and inspirational books and ensures a cohesive progression of skills and knowledge across all core areas of English: reading, writing and grammar. Please keep an eye on this page for further information regarding this new curriculum - our planning and progression documents are currently being updated to showcase our exciting new scheme. In the meantime, you can see our English themes for each half term on the overview above.
Our Maths curriculum has adopted White Rose, which is influenced, inspired and informed by the work of leading maths researchers and practitioners across the world. The scheme is carefully sequenced to allow children to gradually build up their knowledge and understanding of the relevant National Curriculum objectives for their year, with each lesson focusing on developing fluency, reasoning skills and problem solving skills as well as providing opportunities to revisit key concepts from previous lessons in order to firmly establish them in the children's long term memory.
Samples of the White Rose resources we use in daily Maths lessons can be found by clicking on the links below:

In order to deliver our Science curriculum, we use the Reach Out Curriculum materials which is a fully resourced, intelligently sequenced, knowledge-rich curriculum, informed by the best research evidence available and is written exclusively by practicing classroom teachers, assisted by subject experts, academics, senior leaders and leading educationalists.
RE at All Saints follows guidance from the Pan-Berkshire Syllabus and uses the Reach Out Curriculum materials. Children study all main world religions, and we work hard to foster a sense of respect and understanding among our children towards the various world faiths.
PSHE (including RSE)
We follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme of work which has been updated to take into account the content of the recently reviewed RSE guidance. All PSHE lesson content is discussed in a sensitive way and parents are notified in advance if there are particularly sensitive areas which will be covered.
