School Curriculum

The curriculum comprises of planned activities organised in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. This includes formal requirements of the National Curriculum 2014, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who know how to learn, work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential.

The aims of our Curriculum are:

– to enable all children to learn and develop their skills to the best of their ability;

– to promote a positive attitude towards learning, so that children enjoy coming to school, and acquire a solid   basis for lifelong learning;

– to teach children the basic skills of English, maths and computing

– to enable children to be creative and to develop their own thinking;

– to teach children about their developing world, including how their environment and society have changed over time

– to enable children to be positive citizens in society;

– to fulfil all the requirements of the New National Curriculum 2014

– to teach Come & See, the Religious education Syllabus (Liverpool Archdiocese directive)

– to teach children to have an awareness of their own and other religious and spiritual development;

– to help children understand the importance of truth and fairness, so that they grow up committed to equal opportunities for all;

– to enable children to have respect for themselves, high self-esteem and to be able to live and work co-operatively with others.

Long Term Plans

At St Patrick’s we have worked hard to create a curriculum which is both engaging and inspiring for our pupils. Below you will find curriculum maps for each year group. These are updated and changed to suit the needs of our children. Please feel free to print these off at home, or ask your child’s class teacher for a paper copy. If you need more information about our long term plans, please speak to the class teacher.
