Curriculum Statement

Curriculum Statement

At St. Alban's Catholic Primary School, we aim to provide an excellent education where all children make good progress.  The children are encouraged to think for themselves and to acquire lifelong skills which will prepare them for life in a modern society.  The development of the whole child is at the forefront of all our activities which means that we encourage academic achievement as well as their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.   The teachers assess the children in their care, in order to plan with the needs of each child in mind, setting challenging but realistic targets so that children can make progress and achieve their potential.  

The 2015 National Curriculum for England and Wales is taught at St. Alban's.  The teaching of Religious Education is based on the Religious Education Directory for Catholic Schools.

At the end of each Key Stage the children are formally assessed according to the guidance for all state-funded schools.  The children are assessed in RE, English, Mathematics and Science and this is documented and reported to parents.  If you wish to see the official data take a look in our Parent Zone section of the website.
