Meridian Angel Curriculum
At Meridian Angel School, we work to equip our children for life’s journey, through a curriculum, which is relevant, balanced and rich, underpinned by our values of Hope, Resilience and Friendship.
Our school vision is that our Christian community gives each and every child the opportunity to lead their lives with hope and resilience, whilst building lasting friendships
From Reception to Year 6 the key skills and knowledge taught in reading, writing and mathematics are developed and deepened through the wider curriculum. Our pupils learn through a range of stimulating topics, each beginning with a Big Question. Please see our curriculum maps for each year group for further information.
To complement this, we ensure our children have enriching experiences and opportunities through providing a range of exciting clubs, external visits and visitors to school. Please see the slideshow below which showcases some of the many opportunities and activities we offer.
In order to support children to become strong and independent citizens, with resilience and belief in themselves, our Aspirations Programme is something we offer. We strongly believe that by inviting adults from a wide variety of jobs and professions into school, we can give our children insight into the next stage of their education and eventually the workplace. Our aim is to foster a ‘can do’ attitude by equipping them with the skills and determination they need to develop into the people they were created to be.
To complement this programme in Autumn 2019 term we will be launching Meridian College for children in years 5 and 6. Pupils, during one afternoon a week, will be able to choose to learn and develop a range of skills and interests through different enrichment opportunities. These will include sports, arts, crafts and technical and vocational skills.
In addition, specialist teachers support the teaching of a foreign language and music, the latter through the Charanga Musical School. PE coaches teach across all years and a variety of sports such as table tennis, volleyball and hockey available after school.
All subject leaders have training to develop their own subject knowledge, skills and understanding. This enables them to support curriculum development and collaborate with their colleagues across the school. Theme weeks, challenges, event days and whole school activities and opportunities within and outside school all enrich and develop the children’s learning.
Our outdoor space is constantly being developed so it can enrich different curriculum areas and to enhance our surroundings and the wellbeing of our whole school community. Our woodland walk and habitats area is currently being developed and our allotment is a place where children can grow and eat the food they nurture. Over the course of this year, we have planted 300 sapling trees and nearly 200 wildlife bushes.
