Our Curriculum Intent
At St Charles' Catholic Voluntary Academy we believe that the curriculum we teach our children should be creative, broad and balanced in its approach. The implementation and impact of the curriculum has the following aims for our pupils.
- We will ensure all pupils have enriched learning experiences which allow them to achieve and enjoy success.
- We will ensure all pupils have courage and confidence to take calculated risks.
- We will ensure all pupils develop a love for reading and become 'life long' readers.
- We will ensure the curriculum we teach will be diverse, inclusive and prepare pupils for living in a multi faith and multi cultural society.
- We will ensure all learning experiences are planned and delivered by teachers are both meaningful and challenging.
- We will ensure the curriculum is appropriate and relevant to the context of our local area and the pupils needs.
- We will ensure all pupils are reflective of their learning and seek to extend themselves mentally, physically and spiritually.
- We will ensure all pupils become aspirational learners who are self disciplined and resilient.
- We will ensure that Gospel Values influence everything that goes on in the classroom and throughout the school.
Although our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum, there are other planned opportunities throughout the year which make up the wider curriculum. Children have the opportunity to develop their skills through a focused day or week which culminate in sharing assemblies and exhibition events.
We teach the subjects of the National Curriculum both discreetly and through topics which are carefully planned in order to ensure our pupils acquire knowledge,cover key skills and experience progression in their learning. We aspire for every pupil to thirst for knowledge and become life long learners.
