As part of our aim to establish strong links between school, parents and pupils, this section includes information about the curriculum we teach at St. Mary’s.
To all our pupils,
Every day at St Mary’s, the staff and governors are working to make sure that by the time you leave us:
At St Mary's, we ensure our children receive high quality teacher and learning on a day-today basis, not only in our classrooms but also in the varied outdoor learning areas we have on our grounds. Our school places high value on the learning environment, both in and outdoors, that our children are exposed to every day. Through this approach, we believe we secure the best possible learning environment for children to grow and flourish as learners and people.
Phonics: Letters and Sounds
We follow the Letters and Sounds Phonics programme.
In common with all Catholic schools in the Salford Diocese, we follow the Salford Religious Guidelines. Throughout the year we hold weekly class assemblies, to which all parents are invited. During Year 3, the children will make their First Confession during Advent, receive their First Holy Communion on Easter Sunday and be confirmed on Pentecost Sunday.
As an integral part of the school curriculum, we would ask parents to ensure that all home learning set is completed on time. The school has a strict home learning policy which details time and frequency for both Key Stages.
