St Mary’s R.C. First School



National Curriculum – DfE

We strive to deliver the kind of programme that we feel is going to make a real difference to children’s lives.  Ensuring that our children grow up to lead safe, happy and successful lives is at the heart of what we do.  We are working hard to meet the outcomes of the “Every Child Matters” agenda by taking every opportunity to integrate them both within and beyond the school.

In addition St Mary’s offers a modern foreign language (French) and a range of outdoor educational activities. The programmes of study for the above foundation subjects are taught within carefully selected topics which draw upon a number of different subject areas. The children are taught these National Curriculum subjects and RE in mixed ability groups. Liaison with St Joseph’s RC Middle School, Hexham ensures continuity and progression through the programmes of work for the children as they work through Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum in Years 3 and 4 with us at St Mary’s then into Years 5 and 6 at St Joseph’s Middle School.
