Curriculum Information





At St Bede’s we want the very best curriculum for our children.  Above are the four Keystones of our curriculum that underwrite all learning in our School. We believe that by giving our children lots of opportunities to grow and develop Intellectually, Physically, Socially and Spiritually, we are giving them the best start to their education as well as all the prerequisites needed to go on and develop further reaching their full potential in the future.

In addition to these four areas, as a school, we also have to fulfil the requirement set out within the National Curriculum and follow the Hexham and Newcastle Diocese Come and See religious education program.

All the above learning is delivered by either discrete individual lessons or through a vibrant and worthwhile topic.  The provisional list of this Year’s topics can be viewed by clicking on the topics below. To see some examples of the activities that our topics provided for our children click on the links below.
