Curriculum

At St Martha’s, our school vision is as follows:

Our vision is to create a community based on Catholic faith and values where every child is empowered to be the best he or she can be, nurtured by outstanding teachers, staff and governors."

Our curriculum is central to achieving this aim. At the core is a broad and balanced curriculum which is creative, inspiring and challenging, and also provides pupils with the knowledge and skills they need both now and in the future to become confident and successful lifelong learners.

We inspire and foster a love for learning through offering children new and exciting experiences both in the classroom and through extra-curricular activities. The broad range of sporting, artistic and academic opportunities on offer allows children to discover their unique gifts, talents and passions, which in turn build self-esteem, resilience and independence.

Developing children’s reading and spoken language is an integral aspect of teaching and learning across all subjects at St Martha’s. Moreover, through our reading culture we aim to instil a lifelong love for reading in all our pupils.

We celebrate the diversity of our school community and enable all pupils to acquire the attitudes which give them the resilience to thrive. At St Martha’s we believe in order for all children to flourish and ‘be the best that they can be’ they deserve to learn in a nurturing, safe and spiritual environment, routed in mutual respect. We work together in order to promote a supportive, caring and ‘family’ culture where we implement open conversation and help is always at hand without judgement.

As a Catholic school we strive to ensure that the curriculum reflects Christ and the messages of the church.  We do this through treating others with respect, supporting each other’s learning and teaching through the Gospels.
