St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School is a medium sized school located in Borehamwood, close to Watford. It currently has 210 pupils on roll in single form classes. Whilst the school is surrounded by housing and is close to the town centre, it does have a surprising amount of outside, green space. There is space for sports, forest school and quiet, reflective places for prayer and collective worship. The school is made up of families from a range of backgrounds and some children have a wide variety of needs. The school works closely and successfully with those families, so much so that many do not want to leave the school to access specialist provision. The local community is strong and supportive with the Parish Priest of St Teresa’s church playing an active role in both the school and the wider area.  



At St Teresa’s, we want a curriculum that is exciting and inspiring. We need it to help our pupils develop their knowledge and skills in all subject areas whilst making connections between the subjects and remembering what they have learnt through, linked learning. We are passionate about Catholic Social teaching being at the core of our curriculum and we feel that centring our curriculum around this will support us significantly in achieving those links. At St Teresa’s, we want our curriculum to be meaningful as we recognise that a curriculum for human flourishing has a focus on the importance of human creativity and achievement and how this leads to the development of responsible educated citizens who go out into the world and make a positive difference.
