As a learning community centred in Christ, we walk hand in hand with God on our journey in faith.


How do we link our faith to history?

As a school, we promote the academic social, moral, spiritual, religious and physical development of each and every child through the teaching of Catholic Social Teachings and UNICEF Rights and Responsibilities to ensure pupils have a secure understanding of shared values and grow to become highly skilled, cultured, educated global citizens, ready for the modern world. 

Its it the golden thread which runs through every curriculum area.

In history we link every lesson - from the start of Reception right through to year 6  - with this  golden thread which ends with our year 6 unit: 'The History of Human Rights'. 

Children continuously link their learning back to how, in the past, rights have been withheld from certain groups and how Catholic Social Teachings plan to combat this now, in the modern world.
