Curriculum Intent



The Holy Trinity Curriculum enables children to immerse themselves in exciting, meaningful, and memorable learning experiences.

Pertinent links are made between subjects using overarching themes to contextualise and motivate learners. The organisation of the curriculum has in-built flow across a sequence of lessons and between year groups using a hybrid of discrete and contextualised learning opportunities. The Holy Trinity curriculum is well-sequenced with clear content and endpoints to enable progress for all.

The curriculum is celebrated through the totality of the child’s time at Holy Trinity’s including class assemblies and Church services, Godly Play, extra-curricular events, displays and a daily plethora of engaging activities. This broad and balanced curriculum enables children to discover new interests, develop strengths and advance passions and talents. ‘Big questions’ engage children and encourage independent, creative thinking across subject areas, and key themes flow through the Holy Trinity curriculum.

We focus on ways to be rooted in our Christian values, to grow and flourish throughout our whole curriculum.

At Holy Trinity, we believe that Jesus is the vine and we are the branches and if we remain in him we shall bear much fruit. (John 15 v.5)

Each theme begins with a special memorable event to instantly hook learners. Taking an ‘enquiry-led, knowledge-rich, skills-based’ approach, children develop and strengthen their knowledge while acquiring and using a range of fundamental skills – the foundations to lifelong learning.

We pride ourselves on our strong foundation of teaching of phonics through Little Wandle, which is then built upon through shared reading opportunities and Destination Reader. We ensure that all children leave our school being able to read and foster a love of reading, in order that all children can access our curriculum and flourish in their lives.
