At Holy Rosary Religious Education and SMSC are priority. We want children to develop skills that will equip them for later life and help them become the amazing citizens, God created her to be.
|We promote a broad and balanced Catholic curriculum which seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ. We promote these values by our words and deeds, and Catholic doctrine and practice therefore permeates every aspect of the school’s activity. We provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced, recognising that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God (Gen1:27).
The mission statement, displayed throughout school, is a powerful declaration of how we bear witness to a loving God! It is our distinctive purpose, it is what makes our school special and it is our remit in our journey – meeting God each day. Jesus Christ is at the heart of everything we do.
|Our curriculum is designed to enable every pupil to discern their vocation and to be well-equipped to follow it as active citizens in service to the world. “The mission of schools is to develop a sense of truth, of what is good and beautiful. And this occurs through a rich path made up of many ingredients. This is why there are so many subjects – because development is the result of different elements that act together.” Pope Francis

We also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and strong pastoral support. We incorporate democratic principles, value the rule of law, support individual liberty and foster a community in which different faiths and beliefs are respected.”
|As a school, weekly assemblies aid the delivery of Caritas in Action. Caritas in Action supports the RE curriculum with the teachings of social justice and the Universal Church.
These are delivered using a model of reflection which allows children time to think about and discuss the Catholic Social teaching themes. Children are invited to reflect on each assembly with an activity afterwards. These reflections then become the offering for the next assembly, showing how these themes interlink into our daily lives in and out of school.
Caritas In Action Assembly plan
Each class has been named after a Saint and these are displayed on all classroom doors. These saints have shown special qualities that we feel our children should know about. The children have spent time learning about their Saint and how these relate to our own lives.
Each class will deliver their class assembly based on the life of their class saint, helping others in school to recognise their qualities. This assembly will be close to the date of the feast day of their saint, allowing us time to recognise and honour.
