Intent

The curriculum at St Mary’s is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all children. It provides opportunities for children to develop as independent, motivated, curious and successful learners, with high aspirations, who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society. Our curriculum drivers communication, creativity, environment and community support the development of the whole child and promote a positive attitude to learning. The curriculum celebrates the diversity and utilises the skills, knowledge and cultural wealth of the community while supporting the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, ensuring that children are well prepared for life in our world.

Implementation

We will deliver our curriculum intent through a thematic approach covering all areas of the National Curriculum 2014 National Curriculum for England. Our themes aim to motivate, promote independence and develop curiosity, however, we are able to tailor this curriculum to the needs of the children in our school. Our curriculum is underpinned by our values and vision.

Impact

School leaders and teachers regularly measure the impact of our curriculum through the monitoring of teaching and learning, assessment and performance management to ensure our children achieve their full potential.

Working in collaboration with Empower Trust, school leaders, subject leaders and teachers we evaluate the impact of teaching and learning through;

  • talking to our children,
  • undertaking learning walks,
  • looking at books,
  • listening to parents

We then feed all of this into our school improvement cycle to continue to improve and develop the way we teach our children.
