Curriculum Intent

We strive to provide a curriculum that is designed to empower and inspire learners with powerful knowledge; to develop literacy and numeracy skills and foster love of learning, strength of character and deepen faith and joy, so that our learners are equipped with the keys to open doors and the courage to feel they can open them. In doing so, we fulfil our mission "I have come so that they have life and live it to the full" (John 10:10).

Curriculum design

The curriculum is designed to recognise prior learning and is coherently sequenced to ensure that learners are rich in knowledge, skills and values to become life-long learners.
We deliver the National Curriculum in a way which is appropriate to our city, our area, our school and our planet. It is a curriculum which sets in place firm foundations to promote learning and self-esteem of the learner.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual and welcome differences within our community. We provide enhancement opportunities to engage learning and believe that childhood should be a happy, safe, investigative and enquiring time in our lives.
