St Catherine’s offers a broad and balanced and relevant curriculum, which reflects the society in which we live. Our aim is to provide a fun, meaningful and hands on curriculum which enables all children to participate, enjoy and excel. Our curriculum enriches the lives of our children; helps them live out the Gospel values and provides skills for life beyond school.

The children are encouraged to learn in an active way by observing, questioning, investigating and drawing conclusions. We aim for all the children to become confident and independent learners who are well-motivated and enjoy learning. The children have pride in their achievements and respect for the multi-cultural society in which we live.

Our curriculum is organised with a topic based approach, where the work for the half term is taught in a cross curricular way.
