Curriculum Intent at Blessed Dominic 

 

At Blessed Dominic, senior leaders, staff and Governors place great importance on a curriculum that develops the whole child. Through our core values, with Christ at the centre, we foster an environment where the, physical, academic, social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of each child is considered carefully.  We do this alongside nurturing their emotional and mental well-being through a carefully planned PSHE curriculum.

Our curriculum has been carefully mapped to include coverage of the National Curriculum whilst also providing a range of enrichment experiences for our pupils through an enhanced curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to challenge, engage and motivate, with the ultimate goal that our learners progress academically and become successful, confident individuals, who make a positive contribution to the community and society – both now and in the future.  At Blessed Dominic, we believe every single child ought to have the opportunity to succeed, so ensure our resources are targeted accurately and well planned to overcome any learning barriers.

As a school, we base our learning on a broad and balanced curriculum and strive to deliver wide and varied learning experiences, which are memorable and contextual.  We are fully committed to developing each child’s unique potential within a secure and caring environment. We use a range of sources to meet the needs of the curriculum and provide an exciting and enlightening learning experience for our children, maximising the opportunities in our local area.  We believe that our children should not only reach their best academically, but also develop a thirst for knowledge, foster a love of learning and leave our school with exceptional independent learning skills.

The children at Blessed Dominic are autonomous learners who use the Blessed Dominic Learning Behaviour Model to reach the challenges set by their teachers. Excellent teaching and learning give children opportunities to be successful in a creative, safe, calm environment where classrooms and other learning spaces promote creativity and high aspiration.

Our aim for this academic year is to successfully blend the carefully planned curriculum and provision provided in school, with an effective and robust virtual learning platform.  We aim to provide the same high quality curriculum and pupil/teacher dialogue that pupils experience in school, at home, when necessary.
