At St Vincent's, we are very proud of our  rich and inspiring Connected Curriculum which aims to foster a life-long love of learning.  We live in a fast paced, ever changing world and it is our duty as educators to  equip our children with the skills required to be independent and responsible citizens. We aim to foster deep, memorable and connected learning. 

 
Our Connected Curriculum aims to:
  • Raise achievement
  • Provide an enriching curriculum fit for the 21st Century
  • Build up children’s confidence and motivation to learn through the use of a range of learning and teaching styles
  • Develop thinking and learning skills
  • Enable safe ‘risk taking’
  • Promote curiosity and higher order questioning
  • Embed key skills in order to prepare children for real-life and everyday situations
  • Provide opportunities to apply knowledge and learning in practical ways
  • Provide a creative approach to planning and delivery that will incorporate and embed key aspects of the National Curriculum
  • Provide enrichment opportunities where learning and teaching can take place beyond the classroom
  • Develop social skills and encourage children to become more active citizens within the school community and beyond
What will the Connected Curriculum do for our learners?
  • Increase learners’ motivation, enthusiasm and engagement in their learning, making learning more meaningful, through putting it into context
  • Raise standards in both teaching and learning
  • Help learners become more independent and take greater ownership of their learning, developing children’s confidence and motivation to learn through the use of a range of learning and teaching styles
  • Give opportunity for a flexible timetabling approach to make space for true depth of study
  • Establish cross-curricular links to foster a broader understanding
  • Create and maintain an exciting and stimulating learning environment
  • Provide opportunities to apply knowledge and learning in practical ways and to solve problems in a variety of situations

 

Subjects included in Connected Curriculum
