St Michael's Middle School

Curriculum

COVID UPDATE - Below we will publish our school curriculum. Due to COVID-19 we may need to adapt what is taught and when. This is to take account of the time pupils were working from home and accommodate the changes we've put in place to protect pupils now they are back in school. 

St. Michael’s Middle School

Curriculum Statement

St. Michael’s Middle School offers a rich and varied curriculum underpinned by our core values of Aspiration, Belief and Creativity. The St. Michael’s ABC. It is the vehicle by which we inspire learning and develop the essential knowledge, skills and understanding which are the building blocks for future success.

The St. Michael’s curriculum is based on the National Curriculum, enriched by a wide range of additional opportunities for learning and development.  Whilst utilising the best teaching and learning strategies, we aim to develop pupils to a high level of competence in all subject areas.

The curriculum is structured to make the most of our teachers’ expertise. In years 5 and 6 pupils experience:

  • A Primary Core, taught by their tutor, encompassing 15/16 hours of English, Maths and Humanities and
  • a Middle Enrichment, which guarantees RE, Science, PE, Music, French, Technology and Computer Science every week. 

The Key Stage 3 curriculum maintains a broad ranging academic focus while developing the skills and understanding to be successful as pupils’ transition into KS4.

Throughout all aspects of the taught curriculum, we expect teachers to analyse and respond to pupil understanding and adapt lessons to meet their needs.
