St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School

At St. Anthony’s we bring faith, fun, learning and culture together, relating Christ’s message of love, mercy and kindness to modern life. Our Catholic identity is not exclusive to RE lessons and worship but shines throughout every aspect of school and every adult in school, helping the children in their lifelong journey with God as part of our community of faith as we ourselves journey towards our 'Outstanding 2020 Vision'. Our wonderful children are bright eyed and enthusiastic: they want to achieve in all areas of the curriculum - thanks to the work of our staff and governors and the steadfast support of our parents. We hope you enjoy browsing our website and even following us on Twitter. We can only show you a fraction of the vibrant work that happens here each day and offer you a glimpse of our exciting developments. I would love you to accept an invite to come and visit us in person where you can see every child, every chance, every day in action together with Christ. We look forward to welcoming you, your children and your family to the family of St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School as we stay focused on our 'Outstanding 2020 Vision'

Every Child   Every Chance   Every Day   Together with Christ

Curriculum

St. Anthony’s Catholic Primary School is committed to meeting the requirements of the primary curriculum.  

Our curriculum is taught with the individual needs of all learners at the centre. Our curriculum is exciting and encourages children to nurture a passion for independent lifelong learning and seeks to map out a pathway of coherent learning links from Reception to Year 6. 

In EYFS and Y1 we use Ruth Miskin's 'Read Write Inc' for the teaching of phonics. This is later developed further through our whole class Guided Reading sessions. These supplement the class based teaching of English. 

In Maths, we develop the children's fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills and Teach for Mastery.

Our RE curriculum is supported by 'The Way, the Truth and the Life' scheme as recommended by the Diocese of Leeds.

Other subjects are taught across the week, often together in 'Topic' work. We have specialist support for Art, Music and Singing across the school.

Our current 2 Year Long Term Plan for all subject areas is below.
