At St Stephen's, we aim for a high quality curriculum which will inspire a natural curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their life; to promote the children's interest and understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth's key physical and human processes. It should help to provoke and provide answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world and deepen their knowledge and understanding about the world and their place in it.
