Curriculum Statement

At Sandford St Martin’s Primary School the curriculum, underpinned by our Christian foundation, prepares our children for a constantly changing world, giving them the necessary skills to contribute to society and lead happy, healthy lives. We place great importance on providing a wide and exciting curriculum. We follow a topic based approach and where possible involve visits and visitors to engage, motivate and inspire.

  • Become reflective learners who have a sense of responsibility for their own learning and development
  • Learn independently, with and from others
  • Become active learners who are resilient and adaptable
  • Know the importance of achieving your best
