Each Stage of a child's development and education at St. Martin’s is carefully planned for, following the National Curriculum. At the Foundation Stage, the school follows the guidance Development Matters.
The framework sets out the three prime areas of learning that underpin everything in the early years:
• communication and language
• physical development
• personal, social and emotional development
The four specific areas help children to strengthen and apply the prime areas:
• understanding the world
• expressive arts and design
At Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, the children follow programmes of study from the National Curriculum, which cover the core subjects of English, Maths, and Science, together with the foundation subjects of Computing, Design Technology, Art, History, Geography, Music, PE and Languages at KS2.
All children at St. Martin's follow the ‘The Way the Truth and the Life’ Religious programme.
The school follows the RSHE scheme from ten:ten resources 'Life to the Full'
