CURRICULUM

'We aim to provide a broad, balanced and creative curriculum to enable every child to develop their gifts from God and be the best they can be. ' (School's Mission Statement)

Children in the Foundation Stage study Religious Education and the areas of learning prescribed in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children study Religious Education and ten subjects as laid down by the National Curriculum. All children in Key Stage 1 and 2 study Italian.

For purposes of teaching and learning the school is divided into 3 main sections.

  • Foundation Stage for children aged 3-5 years of age.
  • Key Stage 1 for children aged 5-7 years.
  • Lower Key Stage 2 for children aged 7-9 years.
  • Upper Key Stage 2 for children aged 9-11 years.


We encourage a creative and practical approach to teaching and learning, enabling children to work both independently and co-operatively. 

In order to identify levels of ability and progress a series of assessments are implemented and work is differentiated appropriately.

In the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 the children are taught for 22.5 hours each week, and for 25 hours each week at Key Stage 2.
