A Catholic Approach to the Curriculum


“This is what we are about: We plant the seeds that one day will grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise”. 

Archbishop Romero


Our Mission Statement is the foundation stone of our curriculum where we show that 

Joyfully, unique in Jesus’ family, we learn to use our special gifts to love, serve and make the world a better place.


At Corpus Christi our aims are: 

  • to provide a Catholic education based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ, in which the values of the Gospel underpin all aspects of school life

  • to recognise and develop the uniqueness of each person as a child of God through the broader curriculum

  • to educate and inform children so that they can take their place in society with an orientation towards service and commitment to the common good

  • to provide an inclusive education where all children and families feel loved, valued and respected

  • to provide our children with the opportunity to experience excellence through a curriculum which is enriching and challenging

  • to prepare children to take advantage of the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.


At Corpus Christi our Catholic approach to teaching and learning is:

  • to provide equal opportunities for all children to access the broader curriculum with challenge and support where appropriate

  • to help all children to develop lively, enquiring minds through a ‘See-Judge-Act’ approach, where they investigate, debate and apply themselves to learning

  • that through developing effective communication skills, both orally and written, all children will produce work of a high standard which can be performed, presented and/or published. 

  • to teach all subjects to an excellent standard with high expectations for all

  • to encourage a love of reading that will support learning for life

  • to use technology effectively and safely to enhance communication

  • to help all children develop personal, moral and spiritual values including respect for others and their beliefs and for the environment

  • to support children in their learning through developing a strong sense of physical and emotional well-being.
