This section of the our website is focused on our Curriculum and provides an overview of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework and the Curriculum offer for children in Years 1 to 6.

The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of additional opportunities that the school organises in order to enrich the experiences of our children. This includes an ever growing range of ‘Enjoyment and Enrichment’ opportunities available to our children across all year groups. Because we like to seize any fantastic opportunities for learning which come along we may need to deviate at times from the plans below.

Our Curriculum also includes the social aspects imperative for life long learning. The Rights Respecting School Award and Investing In Children Award demonstrates the importance of children having high expectations of behaviour and tolerance towards each other. St Mary’s RC Primary School was awarded ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted in October 2012. The school continues to maintain high standards believing that education has to continually improve.

St Mary’s RC Primary School aims to maximise social and academic potential for every pupil on their exciting school journey.
