Sacred Heart Catholic Primary exists to bring children to a greater love and knowledge of God. This fundamental belief permeates the whole curriculum. Curriculum means all those activities that are designed to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at school and in society.
Sound teaching methods are employed which reflect the best of modern ideas together with a sense of care and respect for all involved in the learning situation. All children follow National Curriculum programmes in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT as well as Design Technology, History, Geography, Art, Music and PE.
The curriculum defines and describes the full range of experiences that Sacred Heart School plans and delivers for its pupils in preparing them for the opportunities and demands of adult life. It has clear aims and is grounded upon a set of values and attitudes that influence the activities and quality of relationships within the school. Consequently,Sacred Heart School curriculum includes the Foundation Stage, the National Curriculum and other statutory requirements and recommendations.
Through our curriculum we are striving to enable learners to develop their knowledge, experience and imaginative understanding and their awareness of moral values. We hope that it will enable them to enter life after formal education as active participants in and contributors to society, capable of achieving as much independence as possible. In supporting this aim, the school curriculum should encourage individuals to derive satisfaction from their learning, enjoy its processes and be able to see links between their learning and their life as well as learn from their experiences and the experiences of others.
The main principles underlying all curriculum policies in Sacred Heart School are entitlement, inclusion and raising achievement.
