Curriculum

St Anne’s is committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum for all our children to enable them to develop into well-rounded individuals, who develop a love of learning, which they can carry with them throughout their lives.

In Maths, our school is involved with the Wandsworth Maths Hub and Maths is taught through the Maths Mastery method. Our Literacy is taught through Talk4Writing and our Literacy lessons are supported through a whole school reading spine suggested by the Pie Corbett scheme. In Phonics we follow the Sounds-Write programme.

In R.E we follow the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education’s scheme of work.

We focus on teaching Science through key scientific skills and core principles and we have gained a Silver award from the Primary Science Quality Mark for our teaching and learning.

St Anne’s offers a rich and varied curriculum across our History, Geography and Art topics. Our topic based curriculum makes sure that all the children enjoy and access the whole curriculum in an engaging and stimulating way. This approach gives a creative way to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding while motivating them to learn through, interconnected topics that engage their imagination.  Visits and trips and visitors reinforce this by offering real life experiences.

We want our children to learn how to study and work independently, how to contribute as part of a group, and also to speak and present confidently.  We have for several years now followed and used Philosophy for Children (P4C) an approach to learning which enhances children’s thinking and communication skills, boosts their self-esteem, and improves their academic attainment through enquiry based thinking and reasoning. In addition, our 5 Growth Mindset principles of: Aiming High, In the Zone, Curious & Creative, Collaborative and Staying Positive support and underpin the children’s attitude to learning across the whole school.

In our Early Years, we aim to provide a curriculum to develop the whole child. We believe that young children learn best through first hand experiences e.g. doing, touching and seeing for themselves. We plan activities across the seven areas of learning to ensure each child receives a broad and balanced curriculum both indoors and outdoors.

This section of our website gives an overview of our curriculum but please do contact us if you have any questions at all.
