At St Anne’s, Christ is at the centre of all we do. We believe all our children are created in the image and likeness of God. We respect and value all children as individuals and are committed to providing a caring, friendly, and safe environment so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. At St Anne’s, emphasis on creativity, active learning, celebrating every individual’s talents and nurture ensure that children make good and outstanding progress across the curriculum. All pupils at our school receive a progressive and inter-connected curriculum that provides continuity and takes individual differences into account.
At St Anne’s, we encourage children to reflect on the awe and wonder of God’s creation and believe that learning should be a journey of discovery and excitement, both academically and spiritually. Pupils follow the National Curriculum, where they are immersed in a broad and balanced curriculum that instils a love for learning through practical and first-hand experiences. Our curriculum aims to help our children grow spiritually and aims to help them nurture their relationship with God. We provide a challenging, engaging, well-planned and relevant learning experience both in and outside the classroom. This, combined with high quality teaching, supports children’s development and helps nurture a community of versatile, empathetic young people who have a genuine thirst for learning.
Learning at St Anne’s is a social activity. Through a Growth Mindset approach to both teaching and learning, our pupils and staff engage in and embrace daily challenges; support each other to succeed and achieve; are resilient and purposeful learners. Pupils and staff are encouraged to be reflective about the quality of their own and peer work. We encourage the development of cooperative learning skills to ensure that pupils can work together as well as learning independently.
