Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum Intent

The curriculum at Westminster Cathedral Primary School is dynamic, broad and balanced. The school’s ambitious curriculum is structured around the National Curriculum, the Religious Education Curriculum Directory and age appropriate Relationships education. Our creative and fully inclusive approach to teaching, along with the rich curriculum, extends learning further to ensure pupils are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive as a fully participating citizen in a modern and versatile world.

Our school mission statement is entwined within our curriculum. The four key areas: achieve, respect, joy and friendship is incorporated throughout our teaching and learning. At the centre of our curriculum is a belief that children learn core knowledge whilst developing the necessary skills to make them independent thinkers. This is demonstrated in a skills progression that the children will follow in each subject area so as to ensure that they can attain this.

We promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils as we prepare them to become lifelong learners. As a Catholic school we strive to ensure the pupils have an enriched learning experience rooted in the teaching of the Church and the message of Christ.

We are confident that through the dedication of all our staff, an ethos of care, support, responsibility and awareness of self and others within a safe, healthy and friendly environment all pupils will receive a curriculum that is inspiring and appropriate to them allowing them to achieve their personal best.
