Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education is embedded at the very heart of - and throughout - our School Curriculum. The flow-chart below shows how SMSC underpins all we do in school.
Our full and rich curriculum, with its excellent range of experiences, ensures that every pupil at Our Lady & St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School makes excellent progress both academically and personally. Our unique curriculum ensures that every child is given the opportunity to shine and flourish.
At a fundamental level, our Catholic Values underpin all we do in school. These intrinsic values form the foundations for learning as well as the basis for our expectations of how we behave and how we treat one another in school. Kindness, courtesy and respect are paramount in all we do.
We understand that children will not be successful learners unless they are emotionally secure, therefore we carefully design our curriculum and adopt a flexible approach to timetabling to ensure that we can meet and respond to any issues which may arise.
Children’s physical and mental well-being are as valued and important as academic development.
We carefully monitor children’s progress with their personal development and our well planned and thoughtful approach to SMSC helps to ensure that every child is well cared for and supported.
We also offer a full programme of Relationships, Health & Sex Education (RSHE) for all children from Reception to Year 6.
