Curriculum Overview - Aims

Our school Mission forms the basis for our curriculum, we strive for excellence in all that we do and seek to provide a high quality education that will enable all in our community to discover and use the gifts and talents given us by God. We believe that the curriculum is the ‘lived experience of young people in and out of the classroom’ (Dylan Wiliam) and, to that end, our curriculum aims to:

  • provide balance in breadth of subject and topic
  • be coherent within and across subjects
  • be vertically integrated to promote progress over time
  • be appropriate for the stage of students’ learning
  • enable all students to access content and make outstanding progress
  • be inclusive – diversity will be welcomed in a caring environment where everyone is valued
  • ensure our students become responsible and independent learners
