Our curriculum is driven by our Christian values and our strong desire to develop in our pupils the characteristics of successful learners.
At Parochial we recognise that the majority of our pupils come from an area of low deprivation, from loving and successful families who are supportive and encouraging but often limited in the time they can spend with their children due to pressure from work etc. We also recognise that our pupils have very little experience of diversity of all types and that lack of this exposure could lead to lack of understanding or tolerance. As a Christian school, we want our children to be happy and nurtured, but we need them also to be challenged and to be supported in developing a resilient and robust attitude to learning.
Through our carefully planned curriculum, we intend to represent and celebrate the diversity we see in the UK, including diversity of race, culture, religion, ability, finance and family.
Additionally, we want our pupils to see themselves as powerful and precious, providing them with opportunities to develop their self-worth and find ways to keep themselves safe and happy in our changing world. An aspect of this is encouraging pupils to see how powerful they are in their ability to serve others in their school, their community and in the wider world. We do this by building and celebrating opportunities to serve others throughout the school year, and by providing models of advocacy through our curriculum.
Each year group has a curriculum overview, which you can find on the page for year class. For information on what your child is learning in each subject, please see the subject plans below.
