Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum intent

At Sacred Heart primary school, we provide a curriculum that will prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. In both its content and delivery, our curriculum reflects the fact that Jesus Christ is the foundation of the whole education enterprise. Therefore, we have designed a curriculum, which is ambitious for all pupils and challenges every pupil to reach their potential.


Our curriculum has been carefully mapped to include coverage of the National Curriculum, while ensuring pupils have the opportunity to develop as learners who persevere, who are creative, who ask questions and who seek to find answers through becoming increasingly independent learners. Our curriculum content is selected to meet the specific needs and interests of our pupils, whilst ensuring a broad and balanced coverage of all subjects. Each subject is carefully mapped to ensure lessons build on prior learning and make learning memorable for pupils. Teaching and learning is enhanced with a broad range of extra-curricular experiences: including, trips, workshops, visits from experts and collaborative performances with other schools.
