Our entire curriculum and school culture is based on and around the teachings of Christ and children are taught to become kind, respectful, forgiving and caring young people. Care is taken to make links between the Gospels and our day to day lessons, behaviour and treatment of others.

St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School staff have collaborated to create a school curriuclum with the intention to be relevant for our cohort of pupils. This includes:

·       Being underpinned by the Gospel values and virtues (based on the CSPP)

·       Creating a language rich environment

·       Instilling a love of reading and reaching reading fluency

·       providing experiences to children, which they may not otherwise access


Our intent is to create learning that is relevant to our pupils: language-rich, inspires a passion for reading and brings exciting curriculum experiences to our learners. We aimed to create an ambitious, coherently planned, broad and balanced curriculum which is implemented in planning engaging lessons aiming to positively impact the learning of all pupils in our school and, as a result, improve outcomes.


Whilst this curriculum is taught and learned, it will continue to be developed, where necessary, to reflect the needs of our learners.


Below you can find our knowledge and skills progression and topic maps for our school. As we continue with the development of our provision, these will change and be added to accordingly.
