Curious, Loving, Independent, Creative and Knowledgeable
Our curriculum vision is that our children are curious, loving, independent, creative and knowledgeable (CLICK) citizens of the future.
At St Antony’s, we are geographers. We want our children to love geography and to aspire to be the change they want to see in our world, to be conservationists or meteorologists. The geography curriculum has been carefully crafted so that our children develop their geographical capital.
We have designed the geography curriculum beginning with the end in mind. The subject content as outlined in the national curriculum supports the needs of our children and allows them to retain knowledge in their long-term memory.
St Antony’s is situated in a leafy suburb of the London Borough of Redbridge and the majority of children come from professional homes with access to a rich cultural capital. What our children need is a more global viewpoint and an understanding of the diverse world in which they live.
As a Catholic school, our faith is at the heart of everything that we do and the principles of catholic social teaching are therefore drivers for our curriculum. It is also inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato si’, which calls us to “Listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor who suffer most” and by the UN Global Goals, in particular, Reduced Inequalities (10), Sustainable Cities and Communities (11), Climate Action (13) Life Below Water (14) and Life on Land (15).
