Our curriculum is designed to provide breadth and balance of experience, knowledge, skills and understanding in all areas of the national curriculum and beyond, and is carefully structured to ensure progression for each child.  We take account of each child's individual skills and interests and develop these through a curriculum which is planned thematically and is enriched by a wide range of exciting opportunities.

We provide a curriculum which:

  • offers opportunities for child-initiated learning

  • provides opportunites for skills to be developed independently and collaboratively

  • develops perseverance, resilience, independence and curiosity

  • fosters enthusiasm, responsibility and emotional intelligence

  • develops a balance of knowledge, skills and understanding

  • promotes positive attitudes and approaches to learning

  • develops the child's unique identity in a supportive, personalised environment

  • meets the requirements of the National Curriculum for England

  • enriches each child's experience at school through visits, visitors and outdoor learning

  • celebrates and promotes individual talents, interests and achievements

  • promotes understanding of diversity and global awareness

If you would like more information on any aspect of the curriculum being followed in school please speak in the first instance to your childs class teacher.



As a Catholic school we incorporate Religious Education based upon the Liverpool Archdiocese syllabus "Come and See". On occasions during the year, Mass is celebrated either at school, or at St Mary's church. Other religions are also studied and special festivals are celebrated in assemblies.

During music lessons, we follow a scheme of work called Charanga. The children really engage with the work, and they have opportunities to learn how to write, perform and compose their own pieces of music.
