Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Primary School

Better Never Stops

Overview

Our Lady Queen of Heaven Curriculum

 

At Our Lady Queen of Heaven, we believe in a curriculum that underpins and promotes

the school’s culture and aims - 

a curriculum for the whole child.

 

“A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. 

And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints….” Pope Benedict XVI, 2010

 

Mission Statement:  

At Our Lady Queen of Heaven, our school’s curriculum stems from our Mission Statement: 

 

“We are inspired, strengthened and encouraged by our Catholic faith. 

We place Jesus at the centre of everything we do and say, listening to Him with our hearts. 

We spread love everywhere we go, valuing and caring for each other. 

We strive to be the best learners we can, using and celebrating our God given gifts.”

 

“For he who is mighty has done great things for me, and Holy is his name”  Luke 1: 49

The learning community at Our Lady's recognises we all have strengths, and that we learn best through 'real-life experiences' including visits to topic related sites, in-school events and the use of a variety of resources, including ICT.

Our Curriculum meets all the requirements of NC2014 (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum), and is based on a creative and cross curricular approach supported by Cornerstones (http://www.cornerstoneseducation.co.uk/Curriculum-2014-Summary.aspx).

These topics have been carefully selected to ensure full curriculum coverage.

We support our children through Quality First Teaching (QFT), careful assessment (using the Target Tracker system - http://www.targettracker.org/) and a constant dialogue between children, staff and parents, with our aim being to develop resilient, collaborative and creative thinkers.

 

As a Catholic School, we follow the 'Come & See' RE Curriculum (http://www.comeandseere.co.uk/).
