Our Curriculum


The staff and pupils at Christ the King thought about the aims of our curriculum and how they will help the children in our school. 


Curriculum Intention


  • To enable all pupils to deepen their own faith, while developing a relationship with Christ. To teach children to value themselves, build positive relationships with others and recognise their place in the wider community.


  • To widen pupils’ knowledge and support the development of key skills across the curriculum so they are ready for the next stage of their education. To provide the children with meaningful experiences so they can learn, use and remember their knowledge and apply their skills in different ways.


  • To expose all children to high quality vocabulary; supporting their language development and embed high quality literature at the heart of their education.


  • To foster a love of learning to enable our children to become inquisitive, resilient lifelong learners.



 Our curriculum intention is behind all the subjects of the curriculum. We also try to blend the curriculum through links to the History and Geography topics.


Each subject has a progression of key skills . we are currently developing knowledge organisers for all subjects so the children know what key skills and knowledge they are going to learn.


We use the following schemes, adapted for use at Christ the King:


Maths  - Maths No Problem


Writing—Talk for Writing

History/Geography  REACH2 curriculum (KS2)

Science - PlanB

RE– God Matters

D&T—Projects on a page

Sex Education-Journey in Love


Music - Charanga

PE - Succeedin

Computing-Switched on

Spanish (KS2) - Language Angels


We are developing our Teaching and Learning approach, following Rosenshine's Principles of Instruction through Tom Sherrington's Walkthrus. This ensures there is an emphasis on children knowing, remembering and doing more as well as ensuring that every child is able to master a concept before moving on. We have high expectations for every child and are passionate about them all being able to have the key knowledge and skills they need to apply to all aspects of their learning.
