Sherburn Hungate Primary School

STARMAT Curriculum Principles

The curriculum in our school and that of other STARMAT schools is designed to help children become well-rounded individuals who have had opportunities to develop:

Themselves

To become:

  • Physically and mentally healthy
  • Informed risk takers, problem solvers and critical thinkers
  • Articulate communicators 
  • Reflective, resilient and able to self-regulate

Their ability to interact with others and contribute positively to society

To become:

  • Tolerant and respectful of others:  different people, places and cultures
  • Responsible, aware and engaged citizens: locally, nationally and globally
  • Able to develop appropriate and successful relationships

The knowledge and skills which will equip them for life

An entitlement to:

  • Develop mathematical fluency and essential literacy skills
  • Be taught a broad, rich and age appropriate programme of study in every subject
  • Stimulating and exciting learning experiences both within and beyond the ‘classroom’
  • Opportunities to take part in sport, performance and other creative activities
  • Careers education and guidance

The STARMAT strives to ensure that each school will ensure that its curriculum:

  • Reflects local context and is responsive to need
  • Is informed by the National Curriculum programme of study for each subject
  • Delivers careers education as defined by the Gatsby benchmarks
  • Is adapted when necessary to address the specific SEND needs of individual pupils/students
