St Aidan’s Roman Catholic Primary

Come in and learn with Jesus; Go out and serve with love.

Our Curriculum

As a primary school, St Aidan's follows the two national documents covering the primary age curriculum.  They are the Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage, which is taught in Nursery and Reception, and the National primary curriculum which is taught in Years 1 - 6.


Our aim for the curriculum is to provide our children with the knowledge and skills that they will need to be successful in life. Please read our Statement of Curriculum Intent below.



At St Aidan's we follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme from Nursery to Year 2. We also follow the Oxford Reading scheme.


Please watch these Julia Donaldson Top Tips for reading videos to get some good ideas about helping your child to read.


Our parents' Phonic Information Meetings are an important opportunity for us top share detailed information about supporting your child with reading.
