Curriculum Overview

Margaret Roper Catholic Primary School is committed to providing a broad, challenging and innovative curriculum for all its pupils.  We want them to become confident, skillful and resilient problem solvers who take joy in and responsibility for their learning.  This learning journey should be shared as much as possible with our parents and families.
