Our curriculum intends to raise the children's self-esteem and confidence - in keeping with our core value of Aspiration. Throughout all aspects of the curriculum we promote a positive attitude to learning and celebrate the successes of the children and the progress they make.

Our curriculum offers a range of first-hand experiences
Curiosity is a key driver for children’s learning. We recognise that many of our children do not have the same exposure to experiences that other children benefit from, so our curriculum is planned to provide opportunities for experiential learning and wider experiences relating to cultural capital. We ensure children’s learning, where possible, is based on first-hand experiences, visitors to school who inspire curiosity, and trips to places of interest that ensure children have experience of the knowledge they are being taught.
Our curriculum encourages engagement with the local community
Inclusivity is an important value for our school and we encourage children to be aware of ways they can be part of their local community. Our local area is used as a vehicle for learning about many curricular areas, e.g. local history and geographical features, which encourage children to appreciate where they live and to gain relevant knowledge.
Our curriculum is inclusive, so that all pupils can achieve their full potential
Our Aspiration for our pupils means we set high expectations for every child, encouraging them to grasp opportunities and be proud of their achievements in all aspects of school life. Our curriculum provides a clear progression in skills and knowledge in order to learn effectively, the taught curriculum is carefully mapped out to ensure the long-term acquisition of skills.
Our curriculum fosters Christian virtues and develops the social skills and awareness needed to be an effective citizen
Our key value of Love is an important aspect of developing children socially and emotionally, learning to build strong relationships with one another and resolving conflicts in a restorative way. It is important that children learn to Respect the views and feelings of others, and that adults model this behaviour too. This prepares them for becoming valuable members of society.
Our curriculum, school values, and our wider school life enable our pupils to learn and grow, and prepare them to be self-assured and confident as they go into the next stage of their education and then on into adulthood. We provide our pupils with a wide variety of knowledge about the world they live in, as well as academic, creative and social skills. We nurture them into becoming independent learners and good decision-makers.
At the Rosary School our curriculum is built around the National Curriculum core and foundation subjects (see further reading section below). We teach these subjects through a relevant, engaging and contextual curriculum, across all year groups. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive school, and value all pupils, whatever their learning styles and talents. Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all pupils can fully engage with learning.
