“The glory of God is a human being fully alive” (St Irenaeus)
This is the goal of the curriculum at Corpus Christi – to draw out the potential in each child to the full.
We teach a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that engages, challenges and supports all of our pupils. We aspire to inspire our children to reach their full potential. Our curriculum covers the National Curriculum standards and often goes beyond these. At Corpus Christi Primary School, we believe that our children deserve the best - both academically and personally.
Our Foundation subject curriculum, alongside our core curriculum, is designed to offer our children deep, broad and balanced learning, which promotes the values necessary to live in our society today. We have planned lessons that are appropriate to our city, our area and our school population; a curriculum that offers rich opportunity and experience, to set firm foundations to promote a life-long love of learning.
History, Geography, Art & Design and Design & Technology Overview
A detailed curriculum overview has been mapped out for each foundation subject across Key Stages 1 and 2. We teach every subject discretely and have subject specialist teachers for Music, PE, Dance and Italian. Key Stage 2 children learn Italian with a Maestra from the Education Department of The Italian Consulate. We also have a school resident artist who runs week long Art projects in every class in the school. Wherever possible, opportunities to apply English, Maths and Computing skills are planned into foundation subjects. Learning is always carefully planned to ensure equality of access to all children.
Class teachers continually develop and improve their knowledge and skills, both through internal and external training and by sharing their expertise.
Our curriculum is enhanced and enriched by carefully planned school trips and visits taking advantage of our location to expose to children to the full range of historical and cultural experiences London has to offer. We welcome many visitors to share their expertise and knowledge including theatre groups, authors, artists, sports persons, musicians, parents, governors, and community and parish members.
We also provide numerous after school clubs, including Little Legs, Italian, Ballet, Street Dance, Gymnastics, Samba Reggae, Football, Cookery and Art as well as further sporting clubs.
