Our Be-Attitudes explained
Our curriculum is driven by the needs of our children. We want all of our children to have a global viewpoint and an understanding of the diverse world in which they live.
As a Catholic school, our faith is at the heart of everything that we do and the principles of catholic social teaching are therefore drivers for our curriculum. In this time of climate change, we are inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato si’, which calls us to “Listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor who suffer most” and by the UN Global Goals.
At St Antony’s, teaching principles and practice are guided by research into effective teaching practices, cognition and how knowledge and understanding develops. Our St Antony's Pedagogical Approach ensures that children know what they are learning and how to achieve it, are given opportinities to retrieve and recall prior learning and are encouraged to be independent thinkers. In other words, they know more and remember more. Teachers introduce new content in small steps, model learning and give resources and scaffolds to help chidren achieve.
