Our curriculum at St Ignatius’ Catholic Primary School aims to develop the whole child and foster a love of learning and curiosity to enable our pupils to leave us as confident, mature young people. Through love of God and of one another we develop a safe learning environment where children can become active learners and critical thinkers.
Our Curriculum subjects often follow a theme every half term, although each subject is taught discretely.

In September 2021, all our classes returned to full-time education at school. Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted experience, there is the possibility that an individual child, a class bubble, or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time. We have therefore put in place a plan for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education. This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’
If a child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, the school will do all it can to support children and will provide a laptop and/or 4G connections will be sought, particularly for disadvantaged children. Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies will still be available.
Since the first lockdown the staff at St. Ignatius have worked tirelessly in ensuring that if your child is self-isolating or if the bubble bursts and the children are learning from home, that their learning continues. The learning platform that we use is Showbie. Work and teaching videos will be added onto this platform for the children to complete as well as regular communication and marking from the class teacher.
