Blessed by God so that we may help others

Curriculum

The curriculum is underpinned by a Christian understanding of life and Our Mission Statement, which requires the Gospel values to permeate the life of the school.

We aim to:

  • Provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum,¬†corresponding to the experience and need of our pupils.
  • Encourage our pupils to develop lively and enquiring minds, together¬†with positive attitudes toward learning and a spirit of questioning and¬†exploration.
  • Enable pupils to develop language, literacy, mathematic and scientific¬†skills to their full potential.
  • Help pupils understand the world in which they live, looking at its¬†context, value, form. As well as getting them to appreciate the¬†interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.
  • Help pupils appreciate human achievement and aspirations in art,¬†music, science, literature, sport and technology.
  • Encourage a healthy response to their physical, spiritual, moral and¬†creative development so that they experience a high level of self¬†esteem, dignity and purpose.
  • Enable pupils to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to, life, in an¬†ever growing and changing world.
  • Foster growth in every way to Christian maturity, to value others and be valued as unique individuals in the community.
