Curriculum Overview

Welcome to St Stephen’s Primary School, where education takes a unique and dynamic approach to inspire young minds on their journey of learning and discovery. Our primary school is committed to providing a nurturing environment that fosters academic excellence, creativity, and personal growth. At the heart of our educational philosophy is the implementation of a spiraling curriculum, intricately designed to align with the British National Curriculum. The spiraling curriculum at St Stephen’s is a holistic and adaptable approach that recognises the diverse learning styles and paces of each child.


Through this methodology, we ensure that key concepts are revisited and reinforced across different year groups, allowing children to build a strong foundation while delving deeper into their understanding as they progress through their educational journey. Central to our teaching methodology is the incorporation of the renowned Rosenshein Model, a research-backed framework that emphasises effective instructional practices. This model guides our dedicated educators in providing clear explanations, offering ample opportunities for practice, and delivering timely and constructive feedback. By integrating the Rosenshein Model into our teaching strategies, we aim to enhance children engagement, boost retention, and cultivate a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.


St Stephens C of E Primary school stands out not only for its commitment to academic excellence but also for its adaptability in catering to the unique needs of each child back by our deeply entrenched Christian values. Our teachers are dedicated to recognising and accommodating different learning styles, ensuring that every child receives the support they need to thrive academically and personally.


As we embark on this educational journey together, we invite parents, carers, and the wider community to join hands in creating a vibrant and enriching learning environment. Together, we strive to empower our children with the knowledge, skills, and values needed to navigate an ever-changing world successfully. Thank you for choosing St Stephen’s where education is a journey of exploration, curiosity, and continuous growth.
