What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.
We aim to provide an excellent, enjoyable curriculum which ‘promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life’.
‘The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement’. (Extracts from The National Curriculum in England 2013 DfE).
Within the curriculum, we use many opportunities to actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. These experiences help to prepare our pupils for life in modern Britain. The fundamental British values are underpinned by our behaviour code:
Fundamental British values are also promoted via the democratic nature of the School Council and at assemblies.
As set out in the National Curriculum, the school provides a broad, balanced programme of studies. The children study Religious Education, the three core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science, and foundation subjects Physical Education, History, Geography, Spanish (Modern Foreign Language), Design Technology, Music, Art and Design and Computing.

The Rural Environment
We are very fortunate that the school is situated in a beautiful, rural environment. We take advantage of this and enjoy learning opportunities in our local area whenever possible.
The children are given opportunities at various times to discuss issues of morality and health. These may involve drama, role-play, art or written work. Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) is given in accordance with Catholic teaching. Parents have the right to withdraw children from any lessons they feel are inappropriate.
