Curriculum

We are committed to providing a rich curriculum for all learners and maximise learning opportunities through the use of well chosen educational visits, topic related days and after school clubs.

We have broken down each of the different subject areas to provide you with helpful advice and further learning opportunities.

Alternatively, visit the class pages to see what your child will be studying this academic year.

Foundation Subjects

Here at St Hilda’s CE Primary School we provide a creative curriculum based around the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest-growing curriculums in the world today.

With the new National Curriculum introduced by the Government  (2014-15) we have been working hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils. As part of this work we have decided to implement the IPC, an internationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.

The school delivers the International Primary Curriculum. The school fundamentally believes that children will be better equipped for life beyond school if they are more globally aware. As a school we define international mindedness as:

“To have an awareness of ourselves and others”

Music

At St Hilda’s, we have music provided for us from Trafford Music Service. Children will be taught an instrument in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 by a music specialist. Pupils learn songs and perform a musical concert. Pupils visit Stoller Hall and The Lowry in Key Stage 1 to experience live theatre and orchestra performances. Pupils also participate in I Sing Pop bi-yearly, learning and performing a range of Christian pop songs. Children are given the opportunity to attend ‘Young Voices’ and perform as part of a national choir. St Hilda’s received a Music Mark recognition from Trafford Music Service as well as participating in ‘Halle – Adopt a Player’ programme where pupils attended the Bridgewater Hall and worked with professional musicians.
