Curriculum Structure and Intent



At St Andrew’s Maghull Primary School we follow the New National Curriculum . We follow The Statutory Framework in EYFS ensuring that all Reception children have access to all of the 17 areas of learning. We plan  literacy lessons to ensure that children are exposed to a wide range of genres whilst they are in years Rec-Year 6.  We map out grammar, punctuation and spelling in an age appropriate way, clearly defining expectations for GPS across the school.  We use a 'Maths Mastery' approach in our mathematics lessons across the school, ensuring that children of all abilities have the best chance possible to meet and exceed their year group expectations and progress measures. We aim to provide a relevant and inspiring curriculum which fully prepares our children for their future careers and curriculum leaders carefully plan out the knowledge, skills and vocabulary expectations for each year group in each subject. 

Information regarding the wider curriculum subjects and the progression of skills, knowledge and vocabulary, can be seen in the individual subject folders within this section of the website.

At St Andrew’s the curriculum is designed to:

recognise children’s prior learning, provide knowledge and learning experiences which build resilience and critical thinking.

Central to this is excellent skills in Reading – the essential key to the whole curriculum.


Every child is recognised as a unique individual.

We provide opportunities to engage learning in a fun way.


We model and promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values of our Christian school enabling pupils to take responsibility for their lives.



Children leave St Andrew’s with a sense of belonging to an outward looking community where they have the confidence, knowledge and skills for the next part of

their journey.
