Saint Patrick’s Catholic Primary School

'We arise today, to learn, love and grow through Jesus.’


At Saint Patrick’s we aim to create an environment in which each individual has the opportunity to thrive supported by values of Christ firmly built into our everyday foundations. Education, welfare and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do. Above all else, we want to foster a strong belief in all our children that they can succeed in all they do, no matter what. Working with all school parties, we wish to nurture each child’s potential and foster high aspirations. It is essential that we give them the tool kit needed to achieve their goals regardless of background or starting points.




The outline of knowledge, skills and understanding that schools are required to cover is provided by The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and The National Curriculum. At St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, although our curriculum is designed to meet all the requirements of the Statutory Framework for EYFS and the National Curriculum, we are proud to offer a much wider and richer curriculum, making the most of the many and varied opportunities to both broaden and enrich the learning opportunities for all our children. The breadth of the curriculum at St Patrick’s ensures that all subjects are valued.


We provide a curriculum which is relevant to our children so that they can develop an understanding of themselves, the people around them, where they live, the local area and their place within the wider world. From whatever their starting points are, our curriculum prepares pupils to build on each stage of their educational journey. During their time at St Patrick's, we believe each child should be afforded a rich curriculum with many meaningful, engaging learning experiences.


St Patrick’s provides a highly inclusive environment. Pupils at all levels are helped to achieve their learning goals. All of our children are challenged and encouraged to develop their skills and knowledge through rich and varied curriculum opportunities. Those who need more support with their learning are given support to embed skills, to develop at their own pace and to learn in a style that best suits their individual needs.


Pupils will be taught by teachers and teaching assistants with high expectations, who will plan and deliver a curriculum that is stimulating, pertinent, extends pupils’ understanding of all of the subject areas and ensures high quality learning and outcomes.


Leaders at all levels play an important part in the success of our curriculum by undertaking a regular programme of monitoring, evaluation and review. As a school we are continually evaluating the curriculum to ensure that it is tailored to meet the needs of individuals, groups, and cohorts.


Children leave St Patrick’s equipped with the values, skills, knowledge, attitudes and experiences that form our curriculum, enabling them to succeed in life.
