The school is following the National Curriculum, which was introduced in 2014.
National Curriculum 2014
At St Thomas More we seek to live out the values of Jesus Christ and to promote these by our words and actions, following our Mission Statement to "share the light of Jesus, by learning together and loving others."
We follow the approved scheme of work - The Way, the Truth and the Life; beyond this we offer a Catholic curriculum which is broad and balanced and promotes the belief that every one of us is unique and is created in the image of God. 10% of our school's curriculum is dedicated to teaching Religious Education.
