Curriculum Overview

Our 5 Promises which form our mission statement are integral to all our teaching.

God invites us to promise to keep everyone learning.
God invites us to promise to keep everyone included.
God invites us to promise to look after the world around us.
God invites us to promise to keep everyone safe.
God invites us to promise to be honest.

The curriculum at Holy Family is organised around topics / themes that make it engaging for the pupils.

We believe in ‘wow’ starts to topics and may use visits and visitors to hook the children into their learning.

The core subjects of English and Maths are taught daily but links to the other subjects are forged where appropriate. Pupils will practise their English and Maths skills in the other subjects. This helps us to assess their learning as it shows they can apply the skills taught in other areas.

The core subject of Computing is also taught as a subject but used across the curriculum to support learning.

The use of real books throughout the theme ensures pupils are immersed in good quality literature which models how readers and writers behave.
