Curriculum OVERVIEW

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.

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.
