We look towards our school vision of ‘Transforming lives through God’s embrace’ by offering the children opportunities to learn in creative, meaningful and progressive ways.
Today’s society sees our children living smaller and smaller, introverted lives and our curriculum enables us to broaden our children’s horizons. Through our curriculum they are transformed into well-rounded young people, who can listen, who are able share, who are thoughtful, who are patient, who are able to forgive and who are encouraging to others.
Spirituality runs as a key thread through our whole school curriculum – part of our hidden curriculum. In keeping with our Christian Vision, we recognise that we are all created in God’s image and have a spiritual dimension to our existence. We nurture this through the academic rigour we bring to our work and through our passion to help children and adults to flourish and achieve their God given potential.
Our definition of being a School of Sanctuary extends beyond the classroom walls and permeates all aspects of school life. We aim for our children to strive to make a positive impact on the world, becoming global citizens and so we are working towards our UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools award. Our school is also working towards our Nurture UK award, which will enable us to have a greater impact on and provide further support for mental health and wellbeing needs in the school.
It is important that within our school, children receive regular opportunities to carry out their learning outdoors and to have a positive impact on the wider curriculum opportunities such as working scientifically, active learning, the arts, mental health and well-being and many more.
Through our curriculum, the children will become responsible, global citizens, who reflect our school Christian Values. They will have a thirst for learning and a strong sense of self.
The National Curriculum is the statutory document that gives guidance for all state maintained schools. This document outlines the expectations for the knowledge, skills and understanding your child will acquire over their time in primary school.

Trips and Enrichment
To bring learning to life at Charlton, we offer a rich menu of enrichments across the curriculum. Each year group plans at least one educational visit per year which provides pupils with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of a topic and accumulate cultural capital. Some settings are revisited on trips as the children progress through the school, so that previous learning can be consolidated and built on. Our planned Trips and Enrichments for 2023-2024 include:
