St Julians School

Four Purposes / curriculum aim

We are constantly evaluating and refining our Curriculum at all key stages.  The four aims below are the four principles which underpin our work and paint a picture of the type of young people we are aiming to shape and mould. The curriculum at St Julian’s School Newport aims to enable all our pupils to be:

  • Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives.  who enjoy learning, make excellent progress and achieve their full potential. Our aim is that pupils become successful learners who can use their thinking skills effectively and who are able to work in a scholarly way.
  • Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work.
  • Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
  • Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.  We aim for  pupils to be individuals who make a positive contribution to society and who use their talents and abilities for the benefit of others as well as themselves.

We  want our pupils to be independent learners and thinkers who can, through their own efforts, adapt their knowledge, understanding and skills to pose key questions, research wisely, articulate solutions and provide novel answers to problems. We encourage all our pupils to develop the capacity for lifelong learning, to have a love of learning and to make sure that the learning needs of all pupils are fully met.
