"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young. Be an example to all believers, in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith and your purity."1 Timothy 4:12


Sunrise Curriculum Intent

Our unique Sunrise curriculum is research informed to build children's interests in powerful knowledge and skills, supported by long term memory pedagogy to create life long aspirations. This is underpinned by the school vision 'You are never too young to make a difference.'

French Curriculum Intent
As a school, we considered which language to offer to our children based on the language they will commonly encounter at their secondary schools. In addition, we surveyed parents to discover their skills and even their holiday destinations. Finally, we surveyed staff to gauge their confidence and subject knowledge. As a result of this initial consultation, St Mary's made the decision to teach French to all children in Year 3 to 6.

We use Language Angels to deliver our French curriculum. Further information about Language Angels and how it is implemented can be found in the documentation below.
A note from Mrs Read:
I have always loved learning languages. My parents were both French/German teachers, so I was fortunate to be able to go on lots of their school trips when I was growing up. I studied 3 languages and have some teaching experience in France and Spain! Now, it is important to me that children at St Mary's enjoy learning a new language, just as I did.
