Curriculum Overview

At St Swithun’s Catholic Primary School we aim to deliver a cross-curricular approach to learning that is exciting, engaging and challenging. Our curriculum is delivered within the context of our Catholic community and allows each child to develop their gifts and talents alongside their faith in a safe and fun environment.

Designed and planned by our teachers in October 2015, our curriculum ensures that the statutory requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum are met through a range of experiences, skill development and knowledge acquisition in engaging and relevant contexts.  For more specific details on the curriculum for each half term, please see the phase pages in the curriculum section of the website.

In English, there are many terms that may be new to parents. A glossary of those terms can be found at Glossary of Terms

Assessment is based on end of year expectations that are listed in the national curriculum document. We have written booklets for each year group that summarise the end of year expectations in reading, writing and mathematics.
