Curriculum Rationale

At Saint Mary’s we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum which excites and engages our pupils.

It is a curriculum which is immersed in Gospel values and one that allows children to achieve success in many different areas.

Our mission statement and faith underpin Saint Mary’s and can be seen and felt in each and every classroom and throughout the school.

We are aspirational for our children and we endeavour to provide a curriculum which is ambitious and allows for progression, growth and challenge for all pupils. We recognise that children learn best when logical connections are made and when sequential learning is in place. Where possible, we will strive to make links between subject areas.

Saint Mary’s children will (be):

Aspirational; Resilient; Curious; Respectful; Courageous; Well rounded; Secure in their faith; Independent; Creative and resourceful and Never settle for less than their best.

Our school motto is

Learn to Love; Learn to Believe; Learn to Achieve.
