The 'SMC Curriculum' is key to us achieving our whole school vision. We strive for successful, determined, imaginative learners and our unique curriculum is planned and delivered with our vision and values at its core. Our Curriculum intent is as follows:
At St Mary of Charity Primary School, our unique Curriculum is built upon our school Christian Values of Faith, Respect, Honesty, Forgiveness, Aspiration, Determination and Team Work. It celebrates Faversham Town, which the school sits at the heart of.
Through a well sequenced and planned journey of knowledge and skills, the children will become Critical Thinkers, good Communicators, show Curiosity, have the confidence to Challenge and will give back to the Community in which they belong.
The curriculum will provide the children with the opportunity to explore diversity and celebrates differences within our school community and beyond. Broad learning experiences both inside and outside of school will underpin this.
The children will become responsible citizens, who reflect our school Christian Values. They will have a thirst for learning and will drive their own future success.

NB: For the academic year 2022/23, there may be slight adjustments to the planning above- particularly for years 5 and 6 . This is due to a change in curriculum approach in January 2022, moving from a 2 year cycle to 1 year cycle. For more information please speak to the class teacher or contact the school office.
Last year, our school took part in research completed by 'The Children's Society' which fed into 'The Good Childhood Report 2022'. We received feedback on area specific strengths and challenges, which we have considered as part of our curriculum offer.
