“Our inclusive St Faith’s family strives to enable all to achieve their full potential and inspire a community of hope and friendship.
We seek excellence by ensuring a safe, respectful and flourishing learning community, where differences are celebrated and our genuine love and high expectations make a difference to all.”
“Aspire not to have more, but to be more.” (Oscar Romero)
Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact
We encourage our children to remember knowledge and build on their prior learning, by ensuring we carefully consider how knowledge is sequenced. Teachers must understand what pupils must know and be able to do in each subject by the end of each academic year; they must recognise what has come before and what pupils will continue to learn in the next year.
Our curriculum design is based on two main principles:
Some of our content is subject specific, whilst other content is combined in a thematic approach.
Teachers have expert knowledge of the subjects they teach. If they do not, they are supported to address gaps in their knowledge so that pupils are not disadvantaged. Teachers enable pupils to understand key concepts, presenting information clearly and encourage appropriate discussion. Teacher check pupils’ understanding effectively, and identify and correct misunderstandings. Teachers know how to move the children’s learning forward.
Our children will thrive. They will become confident, articulate individuals with a strong understanding of our Christian values. The skills and knowledge that they acquire and develop at St Faith’s will equip them for the next stage of their development. The children at St Faith’s will love learning.
