Welcome toSaint Mary's CatholicVoluntary Academy

Our Curriculum

In classes 1 and 2 (Reception Year and Years 1 and 2) we follow a 3 year cycle.  This means that no learning will be repeated for any child.  Within these 3 years key themes such as comparing New Mills with other areas of the world or country appear frequently.

In classes 3 and 4 (Year 3/4 and Year 5/6) we follow a 2 year curriculum. 

In every half term, the learning is led by either history, geography or science.  This learning is then enriched by music, art, design and technology and computing.  

Teaching of PSHE, French and PE generally are taught discreetly.
