The overriding ambition of our curriculum is to cater for the needs of all our pupils and enhance their life chances.
This ambition links to our core vision of enabling every child to achieve more than they think they can achieve by letting all their bright colours shine – a vision which is at the heart of everything we do as a school.
Our vision reflects our belief in Jesus’ call to fullness of life. Therefore, the overriding ambition of our curriculum is to give our pupils every opportunity to flourish, to develop their God given talents to the full and enhance their life chances so that they achieve all that they want to in life.
Our belief that humans are created in the image and likeness of God means that all people have an inherent and immeasurable worth and dignity. This gives us a radical equality before God which is the basis of our commitment to the principle that every member of the school community is entitled to equal opportunities and treatment, irrespective of ethnic or national origin, race, gender, physical disability, sexual orientation, marital status, social background, or religion.
Everything we do is underpinned by our Christian faith and our belief in equality of opportunity for all and our conviction that pupils’ starting points in life and their social and economic status should not define their endpoints.
By the end of each pupil’s time at Fisher More, we aim to have transformed their lives and educational prospects through a wide-ranging and ambitious curriculum that does not cease at the boundaries of the classroom or the school. We teach knowledge rigorously but also place an emphasis on skills and preparing pupils for the world of higher education and work.
- Our curriculum aims to meet the needs of all pupils, providing each individual pupil with a range of opportunities to learn and achieve. Pupils should build on their strengths and develop their enjoyment of and commitment to learning. In doing so, pupils develop their knowledge, skills, and abilities to the full and can maximise their true potential.
- The Catholic ethos of our school forms the basis of the curriculum. The curriculum promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development. In particular, the curriculum enables pupils to grow in their Christian Catholic faith and to function as active,
