Curriculum Rationale

St Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy is a loving and supportive school where we learn to care
for God’s world and each other. We challenge everyone to be the best person that they can be,
following Jesus’ example to live out the Gospel Values; we have Mary as our role model.
Through a curriculum that offers a wide range of inspirational and engaging learning
opportunities, we aim to create a community of inquisitive, independent and communicative
learners equipped with all the tools needed to achieve, enjoy and contribute positively to life in
the modern world.

The following school aims encapsulate and support our principles of curriculum design:
