I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
Here at Holy Family Catholic Primary School, we offer a broad, rich and balanced curriculum which actively promotes 'British Values'. Click here to read our 'British Values' school policy.
HOLY FAMILY CURRICULUM OFFER
At Holy Family Catholic Primary School our curriculum is skills based and knowledge rich; we cover less because we believe that our children should have the opportunity to study areas of the curriculum in greater depth. We want our children to produce exceptional outcomes whilst developing their independence, curiosity and creativity. We want to produce collaborators, innovators, leaders and young people who understand what it means to follow in Jesus' footsteps. Our aim is to establish a school of the Lord’s Service
FOUNDATION STAGE CURRICULUM
Here at Holy Family the children will follow The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework. This framework ‘sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.’
There are seven areas of learning:-
- Communication and language;
- Personal, social and emotional development;
- Physical development;
- Understanding the world; and
- Expressive arts and design.
These areas of learning are very evident in the classroom setting as the rooms are designed to further promote the learning of the children through play with a mixture of adult led and child initiated activities.
