Welcome to the curriculum section of the Holy Cross catholic Primary School's website.  We launched this section in September 2018 to ensure that we communicated our new curriculum effectively to parents.  This year we have launched new curriculums for:

  • English that links writing to high quality literature
  • Mathematics to develop mastery and secure understanding of mathematical thinking and concepts.

Science to ensure that our children think like scientists and have a good understanding of the knowledge in the primary curriculum.


If you require any further information regarding our curriculum, please contact Mrs Paula Brás Deputy Headteacher on 0151 652 8454 or alternatively email

  • Computing so our children get a great start in computational thinking and develop a curiosity and understanding of coding and computing.
  • PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) to ensure that our school values are well understood and celebrated throughout our school community.
  • PE to ensure at least an hour of physical fitness a week.  We are also ensuring that our children all enter two intra-school competitions a year.  

We are making small changes to other parts of our curriculum including French, music, art and humanities.  We are aiming to ensure that we promote excellence in these areas.  Further curriculum changes are planned for 2018-19
