St. Ignatius Catholic Primary School is an inclusive school where Christ and the principles of the Catholic faith are at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum for our children, working in partnership with parents and the parish to equip them with core values and knowledge to help them develop their future potential. We aim to provide the children with a firm foundation and understanding of being a good citizen, understanding and maintaining good mental and physical health alongside an engaging and varied curriculum.
At St. Ignatius our curriculum is determined by the National Curriculum 2014. Children are provided with knowledge-based learning opportunities which are equally as challenging as they are engaging! Across school we aim to be consistent in our approaches with the heart of all teaching and learning lying with the individual pupil. We believe that allowing children to access all areas of the curriculum is vital for them to be successful, confident, life-long learners who are able to reach and surpass their own expectations and dreams.
Our curriculum is currently based on the following subjects:
English, Maths, Physical, Social and Health Education, Geography, History, Science, Music, Design and Technology, Physical Education, Computing, Art and French (KS2).
Alongside the National Curriculum our children study Religious Education. We use a programme recommended by the Diocese of Leeds called The Way, the Truth and the Life. We are committed to ensuring R.E. is a core subject and at least 10% of curriculum time is devoted to the subject.
You can find more information on individual subjects on their relevant pages and about each class’s programme of learning on their class page.
