At Corpus Christi we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum, which is based around a variety of topics throughout the academic year. All foundation subjects are taught around a specific theme, which is in line with the National Curriculum; links are continually made to the core subjects.
“The curriculum is exceptional because it provides captivating and exciting learning opportunities which engage and motivate pupils. Links between subjects support pupils’ wider understanding and creative links are made across topics.”

As a school, we continually review our provision and respond to local and national events, enabling the children to gain a greater understanding of the wider world. Most recently, the children have explored, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Centenary of World War I and the Olympics.
As a school, we believe the children respond well to our topic based approach. They are provided with opportunities to raise questions, which encourages them to become inquisitive learners. Our rich and vibrant curriculum promotes a love of learning.
From Year 1, children are invited to give a talk to their class on a topic of their choice. The talks last between ten and twenty minutes, and are given once a year on a date set by the class teacher. Topics covered are connected to the children's own interests, talents and hobbies.
Children often bring in props or PowerPoint presentations which help to bring their talks to life. The talks are highly valuable in developing children’s speaking, language and confidence, and are thoroughly enjoyed by the class and staff alike.
