Curriculum at St. Catherines


At St Catherine’s Roman Catholic Primary School we believe that children learn best when they are motivated, happy and interested so we offer an interesting and varied curriculum which is planned to meet the needs of every individual.

The curriculum is based on the requirements of the new 2014 National Curriculum consisting of English, Mathematics, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Music, Computing, Art, PSHCE, PE, RE and French.

Individual subject information can be viewed on the subject pages below


Maths   Literacy   RE   Science   DT   Humanities   Music

 Computing   Art   PE   French   PSHCE



The National Curriculum is split into 3 Key Stages.

Foundation Stage – Reception (Early Years)
Key Stage 1 – Y1 and Y2 (KS1)
Key Stage 2 – Y3 to Y4 (KS2)

Our dedicated teachers plan exciting, relevant and differentiated activities which ensure that all children are able to access the curriculum and achieve high standards.

Throughout the past academic year, we have delivered  a workshop for parents explaining the requirements of the new National Curriculum. We have since delivered a workshop to both year 2 and year 6 parents explaining the current assessment arrangements. We also have planned in more literacy and maths parent support workshops.

Powerpoints from these sessions can be viewed below
