Our Curriculum has been designed to ensure each and every child can ‘be the best person he/she can be’ by offering stimulating and awe-inspiring learning experiences with Christian values at its heart.
We believe that our curriculum should be completely inclusive where everyone is helped to achieve their very best and where God is at the heart of everything we do. We endeavour to support all members of the school community in discovering and developing their own special talents and gifts whilst fostering a love of learning, a wonder of creation, a respect for themselves and others, and a desire to be the best people they can we want our pupils to learn and be nurtured in a warm, supportive and inclusive school where the aspirations, access and attainment of all learners is the key to success.
Our curriculum is bespoke to the needs of the pupils St Pius X RCVA Primary not only by focussing on appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum, but by encompassing academic, creative, technological, sporting and extra-curricular activities that allow each child to demonstrate their own strengths and talents. We endeavour to provide a broad curriculum which teaches children to have open hearts, open minds, enthusiasm, commitment and self-discipline. We want children to recognise the importance of good mental health, the ability to pause and look in awe at their surroundings, the ability to take their learning outdoors and to be outward looking pupils who are able to engage in learning about themselves and have an understanding of the wider world and its complex cultures.
Pupils will have opportunities to influence their own learning through age appropriate and progressive themes and topics. They will develop sound learning characteristics including being ambitious, reflective and imaginative. Curriculum plans and themes will draw upon pupil interests and inspire them to learn.
Our children will have a confident set of skills, be able to recall key facts, and have a love of learning to stand them in good stead as they continue their journey through school and life. In short they will learn more, remember more, enjoy more and develop more spiritually, socially and emotionally. Thus enabling them to be ready for their next stage in education.
