Teaching and Learning


Below you will find the subjects taught in each year group for the academic year 2018/19

For more information about St Paul's curriculum, enquire at the School Office.


There is a homework programme throughout the school. At the start of each academic year we send home a Home School Agreement outlining our commitment to pupils and parents and saying what we expect from them. This includes an outline of the homework that will be set in that year. We ask that pupils and parents acknowledge their responsibilities by signing and returning a section of the agreement. We believe that pupils need time to consolidate their learning, opportunities to do their learning in real life situations and to develop the self discipline needed to work independently. We also feel that homework allows parents to see what their child is doing and understand their strengths and weaknesses as learners.

We rely on parents to give reading practice on a daily basis so that we can focus on teaching the skills of reading. All children have reading diaries so parents can record what children have read and any comments they feel will be helpful to the teacher.

From Year 1 to year 6, children have homework diaries in which to record their homework set. Our Homework is set within the Government guidelines which state:

Years 1 and 2: 1 hour weekly (Reading, spellings and other literacy work and number work)

Years 3 and 4: 1.5 hours weekly (As for years 1 & 2 with occasional assignments in other subjects)

Years 5 and 6: Up to 30 minutes per day (Regular weekly schedule with continued emphasis on English and Maths, also ranging through the National Curriculum)

Daily reading can be a part of weekly homework.
