‘The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice’
At St. Gregory’s we aim to instill a love of learning in each of our pupils. We aim to provide them with rich opportunity to develop and nurture their talents, to learn from their mistakes and to discover new horizons. To learn independently and collaboratively, to ask challenging questions and to listen attentively. To become lifelong learners.
Subjects are taught mainly as discrete units of work but sometimes they are linked together as part of a topic. In the main, the curriculum areas are taught as discreet subjects although in KS1 there is a more topic based approach to learning. Many skills are taught and applied across all curriculum subjects and learning. This is particularly so with Computing and language skills. Units of study are adapted and reviewed to ensure that learning content meets the specific needs and interests of pupils in our school.
