Our Curriculum

Learning Together with God

We aim to offer a curriculum which is exciting, challenging, broad and balanced. We want our curriculum to enable each and every child to reach their full potential and access a range of educational experiences. We aim for our children to know more and remember more through the curriculum that they experience.

Our curriculum incorporates the Statutory requirements of the National curriculum but is also unique to our school. We have shaped a curriculum that is delivered through weekly lessons (in maths, English, science, R.E., P.E and French) and also through a blocked approach (in history, geography, art, D.T., music and computing) - this has been developed by our children and staff and we passionately believe that this is the right approach for our school.

Our children develop their learning skills through our Ds - within each curriculum subject, our children Dive, Delve, Discuss, Discover, Design, Draft, Develop and Demonstrate. 

Our curriculum also encourages our pupils to grow as learners through our 'St. Thomas' Ten'. We also enrich our children's learning through curriculum based theme days, visits and visitors to school as we aim to provide our children with the cultural and social capital to flourish throughout their time with us and in their years beyond primary school.

You can find an overview of our new Curriculum intent and implementation and how we develop Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural development within the below 'Curriculum Policies' section. All other curriculum documentation is being updated throughout each term.
