In St Audoen’s we aim to provide a broad learning experience, encouraging a rich variety of approaches to teaching and learning that cater for the different needs of individual children.
The curriculum is designed to nurture the child in all dimensions of his or her life – spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical. The whole school approach involves addressing the needs of pupils, staff and the wider community, not only within the curriculum, but across the whole-school and learning environment.
We promote Active Learning in St Audoen’s NS, this is a learning and teaching approach. It requires children to actively participate in their learning in a wide variety of ways, thereby increasing the possibility of internalising what they have explored and of being able to use the learning in their everyday lives. Active learning contributes significantly to fostering self-confidence, self-discipline and self-control in the learner. As children participate meaningfully in their own learning they engage in a process in which they can begin from what they already know, explore possibilities, question, draw conclusions and reflect on outcomes.
