Our Curriculum at St. Finian’s Catholic Primary

At St. Finian’s, we want every child to develop a love of learning through discovery of an exciting curriculum with our Christian values at the heart. We aim to engage their natural curiosity, building essential skills and knowledge, getting them ready for today’s world. We plan meaningful learning that is relevant for society today,  making connections and links through all curriculum subjects. Outcomes are purposeful and set within a practical context.

We have high aspirations for every child and encourage the use of a growth mindset, focusing on the development of important learning habits. With these firmly in place, children are in a position to achieve their very best and reach their highest potential. As teachers, we too are lifelong learners. We see our vocation as a privilege and model our own love of learning each day for all the children we teach.  

We recognise that every child is unique and ‘made in God’s image’. Our curriculum is designed to reflect childrens’ interests and suit individual learning styles; this way, their unique talents can flourish. We want our children to use their gifts to make a difference in the world as citizens of the future. We focus on developing their understanding of society, diversity and culture, building a respectful appreciation of differences; this stems from an understanding of their own self worth and of building positive relationships with those around them.

St. Finian’s wonderful, rural setting creates many opportunities to explore the local environment and to consider our role as stewards of God’s creation- we make the most of outdoor learning whatever the weather. We engage with the local community, organise visits and encourage visitors into school to talk to our children as a valued part of their learning. In turn they develop a wider appreciation of society and a deeper understanding of their future role in it, following Jesus’ model of unconditional love.
