Corpus Christi follows a broad curriculum based on the National Curriculum. As such we offer the following subjects:
Core Subjects: Religious Education
Foundation Subjects: Art
We place great emphasis on the acquisition of basic skills, these being the building blocks to more advanced work. We have a homework policy, and ask for the support of parents to ensure successful completion.
As we are a Roman Catholic church school, it is expected that all children should participate fully in Religious Education lessons. We have a programme of "Family Life" education in line with the Archdiocese of Birmingham’s guidelines, which includes sex education. Our integrated programme is firmly rooted in, and reflects our faith. We work closely with parents to deliver the sex education element of our "Family Life" programme in Years 5 and 6. This includes growth and maturity, health and hygiene, and reproduction. We focus on the ideal of a stable, loving family background, but show sensitivity to children who may not experience this in their own life.
Equal opportunities are offered to all pupils. A purposeful partnership is encouraged between home and school and the work is structured to provide continuity and progression throughout the school. Each subject is taught separately so that children can develop basic skills.
Children at Corpus Christi have opportunities to take part in a wide variety of sporting and musical activities both in and out of school time. All children from Year 1 onwards attend the local swimming baths regularly. We take part in many extra-curricular events including cross country, football, netball, rounders, athletics, volleyball and swimming.
Children have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. We have a choir which sings at all our masses and we produce a variety of dramatic productions from class assemblies to school plays, to which parents are always welcome.
A wide range of educational visits are organised and children regularly have the chance to visit theatres, museums and historical sites. The older children have the chance to stay at a residential centre.
