School Curriculum

Introduction

The curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum (2014), but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’, or what the children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave.

The aim of our school curriculum is:

To teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they are inspired to achieve their true potential.

Our objectives are:

  • To provide a broad and balanced education and meet individual needs.
  • To enable all children to learn and develop a wide range of skills to the best of their ability e.g. literacy, problem solving, technological and interpersonal.
  • To promote a positive attitude towards learning, so that children enjoy coming to school and acquire a solid base for lifelong learning.
  • To promote school values and an understanding of the Christian faith as well as a respect for other faiths and cultures.
  • To provide a curriculum which lays the foundations for children to succeed at secondary school and beyond.
