At Mary Immaculate High school our vision for curriculum reform recognises the ‘four purposes’ as the starting point and national aspiration for all of our learners. In all that we do here, the four purposes guide our curriculum and assessment design to ensure that we inspire all learners to engage and achieve excellence in a rapidly changing world. We have used the purposes to create our own bespoke purposes that has been developed with pupils and staff to suit the needs of our context. These revolve around BALANCE which incorporates the four purposes and the religious life of the school that is outlined below.
Our overarching vision for the new curriculum can be outlined within this statement:
"We will provide opportunities to develop pupils' knowledge and the ability to apply knowledge using key skills confidently in a local and global context.
Our curriculum will raise pupil aspirations and ensure pupils gain valuable experiences that develop features of BALANCE and develop cultural capital. It will also ensure pupils are able to live the gospel values and develop their personal relationship with Christ.
This is enabled through a curriculum that has value, breadth, depth and provides context for our pupils. Our curriculum ensures coherence within subjects and explicitly between subjects allows pupils to achieve and progress. Our curriculum will support the National Mission to develop a better Wales"
