Subject leaders develop and review policies for their subject areas based upon current practice and expectation. Policies link to our school’s purpose, mission and values. Termly subject leader reports to Governors ensure that triangulation activity is focused and rooted in accountability for pupil progress.
The Curriculum intent for Sacred Heart aims to:
- Be a sacred experience, making Christ known, providing opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, resilient, successful & motivated learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive and transformational contribution to their community and wider global society.
- Be rooted in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching (inspired by the example of St Teresa of Calcutta and the current teaching of Pope Francis), encouraging our pupils to grow in self-awareness, and be the living Logos, becoming advocates of social justice, adaptable to any social context.
- Develop communication skills necessary for learning and life, promoting enjoyment, high expectations and standards in reading, writing and maths across all subject areas.
- Be memorable: providing diverse, SMSC rich opportunities from which children learn and develop a range of transferable skills.
- Raise aspirations, engender a sense of personal pride in achievement, provide a purpose and relevance for learning and ultimately to help every student to find strengths and interests.
- Empower pupils to respect each other and themselves, show respect and understanding for people of all faiths, race and gender, and for all living things, promoting stewardship and ensuring children are well prepared for life in a rapidly changing world.

Our subject leaders have identified key elements of learning and the knowledge we wish children to progress in their memory and understanding of.
