At St Mary’s, we believe that learning must be engaging, meaningful and memorable so that our pupils make links between the knowledge they acquire and can use this to prepare for the next stage of their education and beyond. We place the children at the centre of all we do and build upon the foundations of knowledge and skills they have, developing and nurturing their talents as they move through our school.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the National curriculum but led by the needs of our pupils that it serves. Our core aim is to provide a coherent, progressive and relevant curriculum that guarantees that pupils leave our school with the necessary tools they need to be successful in their future learning.
We pride ourselves on our approach to nurturing pupils and developing the whole child as a unique individual. Practitioners at our school recognise the importance of tailoring the curriculum to suit the needs of each pupil to ensure that all have access to the full curriculum. We focus on high quality first teaching and scaffolding, with interventions taking place within the classroom wherever possible.
We aim to inspire pupils to foster a love of learning with the overarching goal that every individual will flourish personally, academically and spiritually during their time at St Mary’s. We achieve this by offering a curriculum that is broad and balanced, engaging and ever evolving to ensure that all children have the opportunity to achieve their potential.
