We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which we are regularly reviewing. We are developing our curriculum to incorporate our three values, Believe - Discover - Aspire.
Our Curriculum structure and policy is under review. Each curriculum area has developed an overview of the intent, implementation and impact, which is reviewed regularly.

At Stalbridge, pupils learn about the skills and attitudes needed to be a good learner. They do this through the school vision: We believe in building each other up, in discovering the potential of our world and in ourselves; we aspire to be the best we can be, through God'
We also promote a ‘Growth Mindset’ where pupils are encouraged to have a positive open mind about their abilities, understand the process of feeling stuck or making mistakes and reflect on the process of learning.
At Stalbridge Primary School we have a rigorous, systematic approach to delivering phonics to our children. This begins as soon as children enter our reception class and continues throughout school. We have created our own programme that works for us as a school and provides excellent results. This has been created to ensure that all styles of learning are engaged, including visual, aural and kinaesthetic, develop cognitive brain development by engaging both the left and right side of the brain in many activities. The decodable reading books used are matched closely to children’s phonic ability and introduced to the children during reading sessions. Children will have a book linked to phonic sounds taught in lessons, to take home to develop important reading skills as well as a reading for pleasure book to develop comprehension skills.
Our maths teaching comprises of resources from White Rose and the NCETM.
At Stalbridge Primary School, we recognise our responsibilities to teach the children according to Modern British Values. We use these throughout the curriculum and alongside our Christian Values. Staff are well informed in respect the statutory duties with regard to the 'Prevent' programme.
