Our aim is to develop the whole child; we value the individuality of each child and recognise our role to equip children for life in the 21st century. We believe in collaborative learning, learning from others in class, in school and in the community. At St. Cuthbert’s we strive to provide opportunities for each child to recognise their uniqueness and fulfil their potential.
We teach children to live through and make decisions rooted in their Catholic faith. Religious Education is at the heart of the curriculum; faith is a thread that runs through the curriculum supporting children to not only be curious about their learning but most importantly to be honest, respectful and empathetic.
With Christ as our role model, together we can give our children
the roots to grow and the wings to fly.
Our curriculum is ambitious for all children. It offers children the opportunities to grow as individuals as well as learners. Ultimately, our curriculum is underpinned by our FAIR values, rooted in faith and which aim to develop each child’s God given talent as learners:
Everything we do in school is underpinned by our mission statement: we are a Catholic Community living and learning in faith through the Gospel values of faith, hope, trust and love. We aim to recognise individuality and encourage each other to fulfil our potential. Our curriculum intent and vision flow from this and is underpinned by the teaching of British values. Our curriculum aims to equip children with a strong foundation of academic, spiritual and personal knowledge and qualities to allow them to succeed in education, enabling them to access the widest possible range of choices to improve their future life chances.
We also aim to value the importance of our World by looking after it and appreciating all that is in it through our Outdoor Learning Curriculum.
This is what Pope Francis has asked us to do in his Encyclical:
An invitation everyone on the Planet to play their part. Please watch the video.
