As Holy Cross is a small school, each class is made up of more than one year group. To ensure complete coverage of the curriculum and to avoid repetition, we have created a curriculum plan that spans over 2 years, with a Cycle A and Cycle B.

Our aim with the curriculum is to ensure that individual subjects are taught in a sequential way and where there are natural links between subjects, we make them. We want our curriculum to be planned so that learning is progressive, with pupils building upon prior knowledge so that they know more and remember more.

During the academic year 2020-2021, we will be following the Curriculum Overview – Cycle A.


Our Curriculum Statements for each subject area set out our intent and vision for the children learning the subject in the school. The Curriculum Statements explore how we will implement our intent and finally how we will measure the impact. 


Our Progression Grids ensure the complete coverage of the subjects and their curriculum.
