At Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School, we are committed to providing a high standard of education for all children. This education is delivered through engaging and creative experiences, which provide children with the necessary knowledge and skills for each subject and embeds this learning. Teaching and Learning are the central activities of the school and our success is judged against the quality of our children’s knowledge, progress, outcomes and how prepared they are for the next phase and beyond into citizenship.
Every effort is made to ensure a sound grounding in English, Mathematics, Science and Computing in line with the National Curriculum. The curriculum is wide and includes a thematic approach to some class work. Within these themes Technology, History and Geography, Art and Crafts, Music, Drama, PE, MFL, and PHSE are covered in various ways. The curriculum will provide opportunities for children of varying aptitudes and abilities to find fulfilment and enable them to develop emotionally and physically as well as academically.
Throughout the course of the year and in each Year Group, we aim to offer a broad and balanced curriculum as we strive to prepare our children for life in modern Britain.
We will encourage our children to become curious, engaged learners as they enjoy a linked/themed curriculum. Our Curriculum Maps continue to be updated in line with the new National Curriculum. This will be ongoing throughout the year.
Together we share a positive and happy learning community in which children see the importance and point of their learning.
Please encourage your child to read daily and practise their multiplication tables.
Blue Butterfly – please remind your child if they have a problem, no matter how small, it is important to tell an adult in school straight away. We sometimes get butterflies in our tummy if something makes us worried so tell an adult and we will try and help. Mrs O’Neill, Mr Robinson and Miss Gribble are the Designated Safeguarding Team.
