At St Bernard's we have a connected curriculum which is a thematic approach to delivering and covering the curriculum. We are very proud of our unique 'Connectors' and feel we provide children with not only the knowledge but the skills to be life long learners.

We are talking on the Cultural Education Challenge and our curriculum provides our pupils with a wealth of cultural opportunities.
Teams one to six
Children in Teams One to Six follow the 2014 National Curriculum. This encompasses English, mathematics, art & design, computing, design & technology, music geography, history, PE and languages in key stage 2.
Each year group has 2 connectors (topics) and there are two whole school projects. These are based around social justice and conservation.
|Team 2||MY WORLD||LEGACY|
|Team 5||GO WITH THE FLOW||WONDER|
|Team 6||POWER||THE ISLAND|

Our youngest children continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). This curriculum allows children to learn through play alongside structured teaching sessions. All subject leaders across the school work closely with our EYFS team to ensure our curriculum prepares our children for the next stage in their learning.
The seven area of the EYFS are:
- Communication & Language
- Personal, Social & Emotional
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts & Design
Life long learning
We strongly believe in giving children the skills to become proficient learners with a 'can-do' positive attitude towards learning. We do this through the Learning Powered Approach- LPA.
