  • RE (which is delivered through the “Learning and growing as the people of God”, Personal Social Health Education, (PSHE) and Citizenship.

Our Catholic faith is at the heart of everything we teach, believe and celebrate. So that we are learning, loving and living together with Christ.

We strive to involve all children in their learning through regular ‘pupil conferencing’ discussions and adapt topics according to their input.

We value the help, support and skills that our parents contribute to delivering our creative curriculum.
