Our Curriculum


Our Curriculum Intent is closely linked to our School Christian Vision. We believe that children should be curious, creative and resilient learners who are aspirational and flourish in the world that God has given us. 


We continue to live by our Core Values and our beliefs around these core values will be strengthened as we undertake extensive teaching and learning to ensure that the children are ready for secondary school and beyond.


At St Mary’s School, we continue to recognise the importance of tailoring our curriculum to the needs of the learners and families in our school community.  We will therefore be carefully assessing in a variety of ways where children are starting from and we will continue to build on our learner’s starting points, address gaps where necessary and extend for others.


We will ensure there is a focus on:

  • Individualised next steps for all learners across the curriculum

  • Continuous intentionally planned personal and social development

  • Vocabulary broadening and enrichment

  • Intentionally planned opportunities to learn outside

  • Opportunities to have a voice and be involved in decision making

  • A wide range of experiences

  • Active learning

  • Children being able to see their own progress

  • Developing their growth mindset and love of learning 

  • Involvement from parent/ carers
