We are committed to ensuring that the needs of all the children are provided for with a broad and balanced curriculum.
We understand that children learn in different ways and we have chosen to implement a curriculum that supports the range of gifts and talents that we house at Servite, making it as creative as possible.
We aim to make provision for academic success and encourage the growth of the spiritual, social, moral, cultural, physical and creative development of our children across the school.
Pupils are encouraged to develop:
An ability to work collaboratively and independently
- A desire to meet high standards and achieve, measuring themselves against their personal best
- An understanding that learning is a life long process
- Maintain a lively/active mind through questioning, investigating and making rational decisions
- Gain basic skills in English, Maths and ICT
- Begin to understand where their interests and skills lie and make the best use of their time inside and outside of school
- Begin to understand the world in which they live
- Develop respect for and care for the environment
- Understand that our actions have an impact on others and our surroundings
- Cultivate an appreciation and respect for their own culture and the arts
- To exercise racial tolerance and respect for religious differences
- To celebrate the success of themselves and of others
Each half term, the children’s learning in class is centred on an exciting theme or topic. The focuses for these range from “Gods and Mortals” in the Autumn term to “Rio Le Vida” in the Summer Term– allowing the children to become experts in each field and sharing what they’ve learnt with the rest of the school in their class assemblies at the end of each half term!
The curriculum allows the children to build a portfolio of transferable skills that are useful in the wider world. Our aims in using these themes are to create:
- Successful learners
- Confident individuals
- Responsible citizens
By focusing on different topics, pupils grow knowledgeable in a range of areas and become confident in using technical language, improving their writing as a result.
We like to plunge our children in the fruits of their topic as much as possible and each half term is comprised of trips, drama, visitors and stimulating resources- even turning classrooms into gardens and playgrounds into castles for a short while!
The children enjoy taking ownership of their learning, producing books, displays, artwork and drama to showcase their newfound expertise!

Religious education and spiritual development permeate the curriculum as we encourage the children to gain spiritual and moral values and learn how to respect themselves and others.
Through prayer and guidance, our pupils grow in faith, deepening their relationship with God and each other.
We develop the whole child at Servite and we encourage children across all year groups to take part in the wide range of extra curricular activities we have to offer.
Aside from after school clubs, learning is supported by a variety of experiences and opportunities to learn outside of the classroom, using the expertise of our specialist dance, music and art teachers, as well as making good use of what our wider community has to offer.
We provide trips to The British Museum, The National Portrait Gallery and the Houses of Parliament, amongst others- always jumping at the chance to explore the city!
