Our Curriculum is ambitious and interesting. We aim to expose children to a wide range of cultural, social and academic experiences which will develop them as learners and as people. Subject Leads, Class Teachers and Senior Leaders have worked together to plan, implement and evaluate and effective curriculum, which meets the needs of our area, whilst also providing children with an extensive range of diverse experiences.
Below are Foundation Subjects Curriculum Intention Documents which have been carefully created by Subject Leaders over the past year. They are working documents and Subject Leads work closely with class teachers and the Leadership team to constantly monitor the suitability of these documents. Furthermore, teachers are encouraged to suggest developments and improvements to Subject Leads to ensure that our curriculum is consistently developing, adapting and progressing to meet the needs of our children. As working documents, there are areas that are still under development in certain subjects, and as a school we are developing our assessment policy.
As part of our curriculum monitoring, Subject Leads regularly monitor the implementation of our curriculum through pupil meetings, work scrutinies, and discussions with other members of staff. Where needed, changes are made in documentation.
The documentation for English, RE and Maths, as core subjects, are done in a different format.
If you have any questions about our curriculum please feel free to contact school.
Below are our current Curriculum Intention Documents. These are documents that outline the teaching of all Foundation subjects in school. Each topic begins in each class with a knowledge organiser, to enable children to see the outline of their learning, and to take ownership of their own progression and the knowledge and skills they are attaining and improving.
It is important to us that these are working documents, which are constantly monitored, evaluated and adapted.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact school.
Maths, English and Religious Education do not use Subject Intent Documents. They each use a 'How we teach at Our Lady's' document, which outlines the planning, expectations and delivery of each of these.
In addition, each subject has a specific improvement plan. If you would like details or information on any of these documents, please feel free to contact school.
