ST PAUL'SOur Curriculum Intent

At St. Paul's C of E Primary School, we consider the extent to which we are equipping our children with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. Central to this are the key academic, personal and vocational skills which prepare them for the next stage of their lives. It is also important that we invest in their cultural capital - our school and British core values, and the essential knowledge that our children need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said, and helping to gain an appreciation of human creativity and achievement through our church school distinctiveness.
