Our Lady Queen of Martyrs RC Primary School

Living, Loving, Learning - Christ at the Centre




At Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, we believe that all learning is a sacred endeavor and our curriculum is explicitly designed to support our school mission and vision. We deliver, and are ambitious beyond, the National Curriculum.


Our curriculum is distinctly Catholic, culturally rich and experience enhanced as well as allowing children to know the universal story they are a part of: 

Know how the story unfolded before them (Past

Know where they are now in that story (Present

Know what they are aiming for and how to get there (Future


Each subject will contribute to these curriculum intent statements and more details can be found on each subject page. 

Our curriculum begins the moment pupils enter our door. 


Our curriculum is designed with the most vulnerable pupils in mind and ensures all pupils are able to access and thrive within their learning environments.


Through our curriculum, we will develop pupils to become who they should be, focussing on the below statements and verbs: 

  1. The leaders of tomorrow making a difference to their community and the world today. LEAD 
  2. Advocates for those around them, those in need and those who cannot stand up for themselves STAND
  3. Powerful orators to the world on the issues that matter to them SPEAK
  4. Gospel activists growing Gospel values in their community, within and beyond the life of the school ACT
  5. Inquisitive learners who have a life-long thirst for acquiring new knowledge and skills ASK
  6. Creative problem solvers who can respond and adapt to a changing world THINK
  7. Inclusive team builders who recognise, respect and value difference SHARE

Parents may withdraw children from all, or part of, the religious education programme, or collective worship.

However, we ask parents to support the Catholic ethos of the school and as they have made a positive decision to opt for a Roman Catholic school, the Governors do not expect to receive any requests.
