Curriculum Intent, Implementation & Impact
Our curriculum is based on our mission statement of ‘Growing, Learning, Loving; United in Play, Prayer and Peace’.
Jesus is at the centre of our school and curriculum. We want the children to be in awe of the wonderful world God has entrusted to us and the numerous gifts and talents He gave us.
We offer rich and vibrant opportunities which draw upon meaningful real-life experiences. The curriculum is designed so that it is ambitious for all learners. Knowledge, skills and concepts are clearly outlined in an age-appropriate and progressive way from Y1-Y6 so that the children’s understanding is extended, year upon year.
All children take part in a visit per term relating to their learning. We want our children to know about a world beyond our school and to be prepared for this world.
Children are taught as part of a topic based approach in Foundation Stage and following subjects in Key Stage 1 and 2. Cross-curricular links are made, which helps children understand that subjects are related. During Key Stage 1 lessons, children are told the subject focus of their lessons, so that they are able to distinguish the different subjects.
The Catholic faith is interwoven in all that we do.
Staff recognise the need for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to develop their own subject knowledge, and supporting children in their learning.
Children leave our school as well-rounded individuals, who have developed a detailed knowledge and skills across the curriculum to enable them to achieve well. This ensures pupils are ready for the next stage of their education.
We want our children to develop a love of learning and become life-long learners, achieving their full potential.
