Curriculum Intent

At Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that our curriculum should provide children with the opportunities to aspire to be more, in an environment, which is rooted in our Catholic values and respect for each other. 

Our intention is that our curriculum extends opportunity, raises aspiration, opens children’s eyes to the world beyond their immediate environment, enables our children to live happy, healthy and productive lives and inspires children to learn more.

We aim to achieve this though a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum, which provides children with the knowledge and skills that they need to be open to their future possibilities. Our curriculum is driven by the aim to enable children to understand the cultural context of where they are, through the arts and culture in our society, so that they can be inspired by the opportunities around them. Our cross-curricular approach allows children to make meaningful links with their learning, build on prior knowledge and aspire for their future.

Our school equips children with the ability to hone their knowledge and skills so that they may be inquisitive and aspirational. When children leave Our Lady’s they have the awareness and initiative to achieve their full potential, rooted in our Catholic faith.

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)
