Curriculum Intent - "Living life in all its fullness"
At St Catherine Catholic Primary School we recognise that our curriculum is key in making our school motto a reality. The aims of our curriculum are rooted in our desire for all pupils to live life in all of its fullness.
We believe that access to an ambitious, engaging and progressive curriculum is every child’s right; an entitlement that we must deliver. Our curriculum has been designed to enable every child to develop knowledge and skills across a breadth of subjects; the knowledge that is acquired through our subjects and themes underpins and enables the application of skills. This solid backbone of our sequenced and progressive units are enriched with purposeful and memorable learning opportunities, ensuring our lessons are stimulating, challenging and enjoyable.
Teachers’ high aspirations ensure our curriculumis challenging, where all children will develop and confidently demonstrate independent thinking and ambition to achieve. These high expectations permeate across all aspects of school life and our pupils have a real sense of pride at being part of the school. They respond to the high expectations and demands that are made of them and develop important learning traits for their future successes.
At St Catherine, we relentlessly aim towards ensuring that the child that leaves us will continue to flourish and play their part in society making it a better place. They will demand the best of themselves and aspire for excellence, safe in the knowledge that they are equipped with everything that is needed to be a success and know that God is always by their side.
Our wider curriculum reflects the fact that we recognise the uniqueness of the individual, and their varied talents and interests. Our wealth of opportunities are celebrated in our weekly newsletters.
