 Our Curriculum

The curriculum at Our Lady Queen of Peace is designed with the views of all our stakeholders to ensure that every childwho learns here acquires the knowledge and skills they need to become successful.

Our curriculum design is ‘interconnected’ with year groups adopting themes which have either a historical/geographical foundation. Within these themes, learning takes place in discrete subjects which complement children’s acquisition of knowledge by giving them relevant connections.

The core subjects of English, Maths and Science are usually delivered discretely however in English, class teachers may choose high-quality class texts which complement their themes. In Maths we follow the White Rose Hub scheme of teaching and learning and this ensures knowledge is sequenced across year groups and whole school effectively. As a Catholic school, our RE curriculum follows the Diocese of Birmingham’s planning structure.
