At St Louis School the curriculum (what your child learns) is rich and interesting. We follow the National Curriculum which was revised in 2014. In RE we follow the Diocesan approved curriculum 'Come and See'. Our Ofsted Inspection report of March 2010 said it was 'exceptionally well planned in topics so that pupils develop subject knowledge and a range of learning and life skills in a coherent and interesting way'.
All children are taught the core subjects of RE, maths, English, science and IT. Woven into this is the teaching of skills which all children need both while at St Louis and beyond. All other subjects, including how to keep ourselves safe are taught through topics or as separate lessons and more information can be found about this under each Year group heading.
Here are our Year 6 children learning to challenge themselves on their PGL Residential!
An essential part of our curriculum is the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education we provide for our children. This underpins everything we do and our children grow up to be well behaved, respectful of all faiths, cultures and backgrounds. A great emphasis is placed on prayer, reflection and service to others. This is reflected in the way children act, work together and help one another.
A strength of our school is singing and drama. Our KS1 productions have included ‘Rock around the Flock’ and ‘Hosanna Rock’. These types of events allow our children to showcase their acting and singing talents. Each year children in Key Stage 2 perform in a Summer production with great success. Previous productions have included ‘The Lion King' and 'The Wizard of Oz'. This year saw one of our most ambitious summer productions yet with the children in Key Stage 2 performing 'Aladdin'. Magnificent singing, a disappearing genie and a magical magic carpet ride were just some of the highlights of this fantastic show! Well done to our terrific cast and fabulous staff.
