At St Winefride’s we seek to improve learning through opportunities, challenge and enjoyment. Our Curriculum is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all pupils and gives them the skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for future life. We believe strongly that each hour of each day is an opportunity for a child to learn something new or master a skill. Learning is a process with a start point and from that any number of endpoints, depending on what a child is learning and what stage of learning they are at. Where learning is at its strongest a child is either developing or mastering new knowledge. Our drive, as a school, is to identify, support and challenge children at all stages of their learning to maximise their individual potentials.
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.
Catholic Religious Education is the “core of the core curriculum” (Pope St John Paul II) 4 and the foundation of the entire educational process. 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
Our children learn the value of being unique persons who have responsibility to our communities. The journey is to discover the real essence of who God created us to be, by connecting with the Holy Spirit that is within each of us.
Our Curriculum is developed around Christ being at the centre. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of the core values of our society are woven through our curriculum.
Our Curriculum is created to develop deep learning. This links with the maths mastery approach to teaching mathematics and allows children time to use their skills and apply them both within the subject and across other subjects.
