DSC_2652 cr smallWe ensure that all pupils are offered a broad and balanced curriculum allowing them to extend their knowledge and understanding, as well as skills in a range of academic, artistic, creative and sporting subjects and activities. The curriculum is evaluated and developed annually to consider its breadth and to ensure that it meets the needs of all pupils based on accurate assessment of their learning and development. This is to ensure substantial and sustained progress, engaging, challenging  and inspiring pupils to learn as they move through their school life and into their next phase of learning or employment.

Religious Education in the Catholic tradition has a key place in each pupil’s education in the school. Whilst it reflects the Christian traditions in Britain it does take into account the teaching and practices of other principle religions represented in modern day Britain. Citizenship is an essential part of Learning for Life lessons; pupils’ study includes democracy, the rule of law and other key parts of successful living in Britain today. Pupils also make choices ready for Key Stage 4 following independent advice and guidance in Careers and Learning for Life lessons.

We have developed a specialist ‘Springboard’ curriculum for those pupils entering the school at a low attainment threshold. This curriculum includes phonics and numeracy teaching and promotes the smooth transition of these pupils into their secondary education journey.  Our most able pupils undertake work that deepens  and challenges their knowledge, understanding and skills as well as in some instances going on to study different content such as Statistics and Computer Science.

We operate a 25 period week, with one hour lessons.
