The National Curriculum
Every school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:
- promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society,
- prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Schools in England are legally required to follow the statutory national curriculum which sets out in programmes of study the subject content for those subjects that should be taught to all pupils.
As a Catholic school, Religious Education is the "core of the core curriculum" (Pope St John Paul II). Placing RE at the core of the curriculum helps us to fulfill our mission to educate the whole child in discerning the meaning of their existence, since "Religious Education is concerned not only with intellectual knowledge but also includes emotional and affective learning."

At St Antony's we enhance and enrich the National Curriculum so that our curriculum is broad, balanced, creative and guided 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.
