At St Marie’s, we are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum which reflects the example of Jesus through the gospel. We have explored the context of our children and their experiences before designing a curriculum which is meaningful and provides opportunities for all.


The curriculum is arranged over a half term or term and is presented as a “Learning Challenge” which begins with an enquiry based question. We have put the  National Curriculum, the experiences of our children and additional local themes which meets the needs of our learners into a two year cycle of planning.


The basis for each theme is taken from science, history or geography in the National Curriculum 2014 or from additional themes which have been suggested by children and staff.


A detailed plan is sent to parents and carers every half term . Throughout each theme children are encouraged to complete research at home and this work is shared and displayed with the rest of the class/ key stage/parents at the end of the theme.
