St Francis Catholic Primary School follows the national curriculum for all subjects. Our three main intents when teaching our curriculum are:
- Cross Curricular – Subjects are taught as distinct subjects and where possible cross curricular links are planned and used.
- Experienceology – Children to experience learning through concrete and pictorial representation before abstract learning.
- Reasoning – Children to deepen their skills and knowledge through applying them through creative and evaluative learning opportunities.
St. Francis teaches a broad and balanced curriculum which includes our core subjects English, Maths, Science and Religious Studies. For phonics, St. Francis follows the six phases of teaching outlined in ‘Letters and Sounds: Principles and Practice of High Quality Phonics’. (Please see document below)
St. Francis use Oxford Reading Tree for our main reading scheme.
