“I come that they may have life and have life to the full”
At Holy Rosary, we believe that children should be happy and healthy and our curriculum enables children to overcome external barriers that will ensure they have opportunities to grow as individuals as well as learners. We understand that children join our school with varying starting points and as a result we provide a curriculum that enables children to extend their language and vocabulary through a range of first-hand experiences.
Emotional and mental wellbeing are of the highest priority at Holy Rosary. These are supported by a strong pastoral support team comprising of Family and pupil support lead, learning mentor, SENCO and highly trained TA’s. This ensures children are emotionally and mentally ready to learn whilst developing key values and characteristics that will help them live a healthy, successful, life - physically, emotionally and spiritually, making them effective citizens and members of society.
This is all done within the Catholic ethos of the school which sees children “living life to the full” through the love and support of God’s family.
We promote a curriculum rich in knowledge with quality text at the centre of all learning. Subjects are mapped from the National Curriculum programmes of study to ensure our curriculum is broad and balanced. All key knowledge is mapped across the strands of learning and across each year group. Subject leaders have clear knowledge maps which show how each strand is developed and this ensures that new learning builds on prior experience and knowledge. This curriculum knowledge is interlaced within a class theme which provides an exploratory approach to learning that will inspire and motivate all children.
Regardless of children’s starting points and experiences, we have high expectations for children at Holy Rosary. We recognise children’s achievements and celebrate their successes as part of a personal journey. These successes are not always academic and extend beyond the school day.
We believe that regardless of special educational needs or disability, all children can achieve success and do so through a curriculum that matches that of their peers.
As a result of the progression mapping of subjects across the school, the curriculum in Year 6 remains broad and balanced. By the time children at Holy Rosary leave Year 6, they will feel prepared for life after Primary school. The experiences children receive at Holy Rosary, ensures they leave Year 6 with high aspirations for their own future.
