From September 2020 maintained schools in England have the flexibility to design a curriculum that meets the needs of the pupils and families it serves. At St. Boniface's our curriculum is rooted in Christian values. These values are promoted implicitly throughout school whenever the opportunity arises and explicitly during dedicated lessons. Our curriculum consists of the National Curriculum which is statutory and priorities which are dictated by the context and needs of our school community. We also use a number of published schemes to help us deliver the curriculum. We use Read, Write Inc to teach phonics and the Oxford Reading Tree as our main reading scheme. We follow Maths No Problem throughout school to teach maths. Our RE scheme is called ‘Come and See’ and is taught throughout school. We teach all subjects discretely but on 3 or 4 occasions in the year we have themed weeks. Our curriculum is adapted to make it accessible for all pupils with SEND. For more details about our SEND provision, please click the SEND tab on the right-hand side.
In line with the school vision, our curriculum and ethos are the channels through which we hope to transform the lives of our pupils.
We’d like our pupils to be free from the cycle of deprivation. We’d like them to see what life is like beyond Lower Broughton. We’d like them to have aspirations and choices and be open to opportunities that come their way. We want them to be tolerant, responsible, confident and happy. Our pupils need to be able to compete in a future world of work that requires a myriad of skills.
We want our pupils to aspire to great things, to believe in themselves and to achieve their aspirations.
