Curriculum

Curriculum at St Augustine’s 

Here at St. Augustine's Catholic Primary we provide a creative curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum.

With the new National Curriculum being introduced by the Goverment (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 new Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.​

Reading and Phonics at St Augustine’s Catholic Primary

Learning to read well is fundamental to a good education and future economic success. We work hard to ensure that all children have that opportunity. To teach word reading, we use a programme called Read, Write Inc (RWI). This phonics programme starts as soon as your children begin school. It is systematic, daily and very effective.  

Our Reading Scheme consists of sets of books graded by colour, or 'book banded'. This is done using guidance from the Institute of Education. We have a wide range of books within each band to provide choice for the children.

For a small minority of children the phonics based approach does not always work on its own and they may need a more personalised approach. Reading Recovery is a highly effective intervention that involves programmes for individual children over a 20 week period.The children make accelerated progress to reach the standard of their peers.

For children who need an extra boost in Yrs 2 – 6 there is a related intervention called BRP. This is delivered by trained Teaching  Assistants 3 times a week. This has a really positive impact on the progress of the children who access this support.

For more details on all of the above, and information on our fantastic school library, how we encourage reading for pleasure, our reading partners​ and, importantly, how parents can support with reading, please take a look at the Reading section of our website.
