Welcome to the Curriculum page. Please see below the curriculum that we use at St Anne's. 

From September 2018 we have introduced a new curriculum - Cornerstones. This was a direct action from staff and children's feedback to ensure that there was a breath of knowledge and skills being taught through a project based curriculum. The children (and staff) are very excited to launch the new curriuclum and so far this year we have seen Dinosaurs trashing a classroom; Pirates in and around school and expert artist displaying their 5* work! 

Please see class pages for the most current topics and for more information.

If you have any queries or would like any further information, please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher.

At St Anne's we have Oldham Music Service in who deliver the music curriculum to all the year groups. In addition, we have whole class guitar lessons for years 4 and 5 on a Wednesday (this was as a result of the children's questionnaire in which they asked for Guitar lessons- so that is what they got!). As well as this, Mrs Housley leads our fantastic choir every Friday. On a Wednesday afternoon, Mrs Hartnell-Booth teaches small group woodwind groups. At St Anne's we pride ourselves on our musical talents and every year we preform at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and we have also preformed with the Halle Orchestra!


At St Anne's Oldham Sport development  (Mr James Wainwright) aswell as Manchester City and Commando Joe's teach the majority of our PE lessons ensuring skills are developed and progression is made. Additionally,  to ensure sustainability, teacher training and shadowing is also put into place. Please see Sport and Club pages for any further information
