Curriculum Overview

The school provides a well balanced curriculum which follows the requirements of the National Curriculum in all areas. 
We believe that we are educating children so that they can enter society as literate and numerate people who have also an appreciation and experience of a wide range of allied skills and subjects.  In order to do this the following subjects will form some part of their whole experience within school.  For a more detailed look at each year group, please look at the class pages.

Religious Education

We follow the 'Come and See' scheme for Catholic schools.

At some time during the day, there will be provision for an act of collective worship which will be "wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character".  Parents may choose to exercise their right to withdraw children from RE according to their religious beliefs.
