As a Catholic School it is our mission to provide a safe caring environment in which to educate our children to lead full lives as Christians; to instil a love of learning, of self and of others; enabling all to recognise their God given gifts and to realise their potential.
The Catholic Faith is central to the day to day life of our school and to all aspects of the curriculum;
it is not an added extra which we offer our pupils. The curriculum is based on a religious understanding of life, and the principles of the Gospel permeate the life of our school . It is designed to enable pupils to grow in every way to Christian maturity - towards a fuller understanding of God and mankind. The school attaches great importance to good relationships within the whole school community so that there is an environment within which pupils can prosper. In delivering the curriculum the school recognises the uniqueness of each child and respects the value, dignity and individuality of each child. The school is committed to close collaboration both with parents and parish.
The Governors welcome and accept the curriculum guidelines issued by the local Education Authority in their Curriculum Policy Statement.
All subjects are taught according to the National Curriculum Programmes of Study except:
- Table Tennis
- Arts & Crafts
We try to make the children’s learning experiences as broad and as much fun as possible. This involves a great deal of learning outside the classroom through visits or inviting outside specialists to come in to work with the children. We have particularly close links with The Music Zone, Plymouth Museum, Tamar Education Business Partnership and Plymouth Youth Afloats who organise free Outdoor and Adventurous Activities for our older children throughout the year.
