Curriculum Statement Overview

Curriculum Statement

At St. Lewis’ Catholic Primary School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the idea that both adults and children learn new things every day. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make significant contributions to society.

We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives for themselves and in giving service to others.

Children will have an entitlement to achieve well academically and at the same time to grow in equal measure in the living of Gospel values and living a rewarding Catholic life. We aim to grow good people who will get good jobs. When they arrive in society with positions of power and authority, they will use this with the Gospel values they have learned at our school:

Kindness (Humanitas)

Patience (Patentia)

Humility (Humilitas)

Hard work (Industria)

We build the quality of childrens' learning experiences through Building Learning Power based on the research of Guy Claxton. It focuses on developing resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and reciprocity.

We are proud of the way in which our curriculum prepares our children for the part they will play in society in later life.


Parents or other members of the public are invited to ask us more about our curriculum which the Headteacher would be happy to share. As a school we also provide regular updates for parents during the year on the curriculum, its delivery and how they can help and support us in school.
