Our Curriculum is a broad and balanced, knowledge-rich primary curriculum.
We live and learn in Christ’s love and light. Throughout our school journey, we know we are loved by God and we show God’s love to others. We are inspired by Jesus’ words in Matthew’s Gospel:
Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye. shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
We feel Christ’s words are represented by the three areas of focus for our curriculum development – Curious, Engaged and Aspirational. With Christ at the centre of our school, our school’s nature of Curiosity (Ask), Aspiration (Seek) and Engagement (Knock and Opened) fully represented our curriculum.
Curious – we strive to learn
At English Martyrs, we ask questions and want to know more. We enquire about the world around us and are passionate learners. We enjoy a stimulating school environment that nurtures our curiosity.
Aspirational – we want to grow
We want to be the best that we can be. We look to the future with excitement, developing our skills and knowledge ambitiously and confidently. We recognise our value in the wider world.
Engaged – we love to learn
Driven by our curiosity, we are fully engaged in school life. We love to learn and we play active roles within our school community.
