St. Catherine's CE Primary School
In God's Love, Together We Flourish


We have developed a bespoke knowledge-rich curriculum which gives children access to broad knowledge in History and Geography. We have a well sequenced programme that builds knowledge and vocabulary in a well thought out way and ensures that learning is remembered for the long term.  We ensure content meets and exceeds the national curriculum. Content is planned so that more difficult abstract concepts are covered in different contexts over time. For example in History children develop an understanding of Monarchy by learning about different Kings and Queens throughout KS1 and 2 to understand hereditary monarchy and a study of the Mayan civilisation which provides a contrasting view of an absolute monarchy.  Pupils use their studies in these subjects to develop their writing.
We have high expectations for what children will know and remember in each subject. See the overviews below for further information.
