At Christ Church C of E Nursery and Primary School, we acknowledge and celebrate our children's heritage. Through becoming more open about our own experiences and literacy practices, we hope to build more reciprocal relationships and find out more about our children's individual passions, preferences, interests and practices both within and beyond school.
'This approach acknowledges how every home brings with it identities, dispositions, stories, objects, artefacts, memories, languages and resources. This implies a wealth model of literacy by which families' cultural capital can be drawn upon when planning...' Pahl and Rowsell, 2005:54
We believe that through creating a more responsive and flexible curricular, we will enable children to draw on their 'funds of knowledge' in school, thus promoting increased engagement and motivation. We hope children will show more independence and commitment as learners and lead the learning with their questions and interests.
Should you require any further information about our curriculum, please contact the school, via phone or email and they will put you in touch with our Headteacher - Curriculum Lead.
Our Curriculum is also underpinned by our vision. At Christ church,
WE LOVE learning.
WE ACT responsibly.
WE WALK with pride and in excellence.
The Bible verse underpinning our vision is:
‘What does the Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God’
