At St Werburgh's & St Columba's we believe children learn best through an engaging and immersive approach to the curriculum.

We aim to develop our pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding by encouraging them to make links with their learning in a range of different contexts.  We place great emphasis upon educating the 'whole child' and ensuring that each child achieves success at every opportunity. 

Great care is taken to make the whole curriculum accessible to every learner regardless of ability, aptitude or attitude. Our curriculum is intended to be progressive, building on prior learning and to actively encourage children to have purposeful, memorable experiences. We recognise the wealth of resources and opportunties on our doorstep and the wider community and seek to use them whenever we can to provide a rich learning experience.  We advocate that teachers use a variety of teaching and learning styles, which aim to develop pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills through engaging activities which are set in a meaningful context. 

We are mindful that our pupils need to be aware of the cultural differences which exists beyond the school gate and actively seek opportunities to deepen our pupils’ awareness, understanding and tolerance of the multicultural world in which we live.  

We take great pride in ensuring our pupils are equipped and ready to face the challenges ahead of them as polite, tolerant, caring and respectful citizens in the wider community.
