The St Martin's Curriculum
We believe that our school Ethos and Values, underpinned by the Christian faith, are clearly expressed throughout our school and are explicit across our curriculum.
Ethos Enhancing Outcomes
Our curriculum is enriching and challenging allowing children to experience learning in a wide range of contexts. Our curriculum recognises children’s prior learning, provides first hand learning experiences, allows development of interpersonal skills, builds resilience and develops creative thinking. Our vision is to promote the full potential of each child through a curriculum which develops spiritual, academic, social and emotional growth. Our curriculum is focused on outcomes with the aspiration that every child enjoys success in all areas.
Spiritual - a Reader - Happy & Safe - a Mathematician - Creative - a Communicator - Active - a Scientist

We instil positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success. Children leave St Martin’s with a sense of belonging to a happy, nurturing and aspiring community where they have explored and demonstrated our school values. These Christian values underpin school life and are developed through and alongside our curriculum.

Our aspiration is that when children leave us they have:
- confidence in themselves and their attitudes to learning
- a firm grasp of basic skills
- recognised the many opportunities that are available to them
- an aspiration to aim high and challenge themselves to achieve great things in the future in whatever form that takes
- a strong sense of moral purpose and respect for others
A child is not a vase to be filled but a fire to be lit.
