'I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full'
Our Curriculum Vision
With Christ at the centre of all we do we aim to provide a creative, inclusive, challenging and real-world curriculum that inspires future thinkers, innovators and problem solvers in an immersive environment that stimulates and supports high quality learning. To ensure that all learners exceed their potential academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually with their families, in their communities as in the wider world ensuring that they become ambitious lifelong learners.
Our curriculum aims:
We are guided by the National Curriculum which sets out subjects and content which we must teach. Within this, however, there is flexibility so that we can interpret and plan to meet the needs and interests of our children now and for the future. The key aim for all our teaching and learning is to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn, to enjoy, be excited and to achieve. We want to provide a safe, language-rich environment where children can have an adventure. To have the best days of their lives.
To help each child grow in positive personal strengths called virtues through the teaching of Catholic Character Education : to develop a good understanding of right and wrong, to love one another, to respect and treat each other as equals and become decent and responsible citizens
We do this through teaching knowledge and understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural heritages of our diverse community and society. We want everyone in our school to understand and appreciate their own and different beliefs and cultures, and how these influence our communities.
To provide a vibrant, happy and safe environment in which all people can share positive experiences and feel valued
We encourage and stimulate the best possible progress and the highest attainment for all our pupils. Our curriculum builds on pupils’ needs, strengths, interests and experiences and develops children’s confidence in their capacity to learn and work independently and collaboratively.
To assist everyone in acquiring the skills to learn independently, interdependently and work as a team
We place great importance on the skills of literacy, numeracy, information and communication technology and problem-solving. We promote skills that help our learners to improve their own learning and performance and that help them to work well with others.
To help each child adopt healthy lifestyles with a sound knowledge and understanding of the factors that affect their physical and mental health and emotional well-being
We place a high priority on developing pupils’ physical skills, self-esteem and emotional well-being. We encourage them to recognise the importance of pursuing a healthy lifestyle and keeping themselves and others safe. We promote happy, effective relationships that are based on respect for themselves and for others.
To encourage confidence and high aspirations so everyone realises their full potential and talents
We provide rich and varied contexts for pupils to acquire, develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills. Doing so enables our pupils to think creatively and critically, to solve problems and to make a difference for the better.
To provide experiences that enable pupils and staff to develop tolerance, confidence, perseverance, determination and resourcefulness
We promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and, in particular, the differences between right and wrong, and that we have rights but also responsibilities. We want everyone in our school to be responsible and caring citizens who make positive contributions to communities.
