Curriculum Intent

We believe that every child is uniquely created and loved by God and called by Him to fulfil a special purpose. It is our privilege to help each child to identify, nurture and use their talents to build a better world. To this end, we will work in partnership with parents, carers, parishes our community of schools, and with the wider community.

We provide our community with an education which focuses on the formation of the whole person and their vocation and purpose in life.

At Mount St Joseph School, we are passionate about creating a rounded, ambitious curriculum and high-quality teaching and learning experience that enables every student to excel and make rapid progress towards their personal goals, always achieving without limits.

Our curriculum offer enables each student to feel confident, valued, and successful, respecting themselves and others as learners whilst also promoting spiritual awareness, moral and cultural values. It enables students to see their potential and work towards making a positive contribution to the local community and beyond in their lives ahead.

As every student is unique our curriculum aims to offer all students a broad, balanced, and rich experience which will equip them to succeed in a rapidly changing world and to unlock the talents within them.  Our curriculum is knowledge-rich, providing students with the understanding and foundations for a successful life and enables them to apply skills in a wide range of areas. At Mount St Joseph, the curriculum has been designed so that knowledge is sequenced to enable it to be built on over time and revisited to ensure strong foundations for life. The curriculum is enriched with a variety of extra-curricular activities to encourage students to make constructive use of their leisure time. This allows the further development of each student’s character and talents and widens their potential interests. We ensure we create the conditions in which all students can grow and develop resilience and creativity, to make sure that whatever their individual talents they have a happy and fulfilling life and make a positive contribution to society at all levels.
