Governing bodies are required to produce a curriculum statement annually. This replaces the requirement under the School Framework and Standards Act 1998 for a curriculum plan.
From September 2014 there was an expectation from the government for all mainstream primary schools to deliver the the new National Curriculum. We have therefore adapted our School curriculum accordingly to ensure that we meet the current aims and statutory requirements.
We follow the National Curriculum, which was introduced in September 2014.
We have used the National Curriculum and our own inspiration to create our unique School Curriculum. Our curriculum values the core subjects of English, Maths and Science but also recognises the importance of foundation subjects including: Art and Design, Design and Technology, Computing, Languages, Physical Education, History, Geography, Music and Personal, Social & Health Education (P.S.H.E). Each year group has a ‘topic’ each half-term so that the teachers can combine the programmes of study in a meaningful, creative and engaging way.
Religious Education is central to our curriculum and is at the heart of the philosophy of Catholic education. The teaching of Religious Education at St Michael’s is based on the Religious Education Curriculum Directory and the Westminster Diocesan requirements.
Below, you will find Curriculum Maps by subject and by Year Group. These maps outline how we will teach the school curriculum. They will allow you to plan how you can support your child with their learning.
