St Helen's Curriculum


St Helen’s is a thriving school in the heart of Brixton with a community, where many have travelled from far and wide to be part of our family. Our Catholic values and ethos are based on our aim to provide a high-quality education for our children rooted in Gospel values. We are a happy, enthusiastic and energetic community of learners and we want our children to thrive in their time with us and develop and realise their own unique gifts and talents through the offer of a broad and balanced curriculum.


At St Helen’s we work hard to ensure our pupils are educated in an environment where all God’s children are valued and it is of our highest priority. As a school we strive to promote equality and celebrate diversity. We seek to ensure the provision made across the school is adaptable to meet the needs and interests of our learners, our families and the community we serve and we try to ensure we promote and reflect the rich multicultural diversity that makes our school so special and unique.


We want our outcomes to reflect the strong attainment and achievement we know the children are capable of as part of our moral duty to achieve social justice for our pupils. We believe our children have just as much talent and potential as other children, in spite of the multiple barriers, in and out of school, some may face. This is why we have intentionally invested in adopting an ambitious and fully sequenced curriculum that we are able to personalise and adapt to fully support staff to meet the needs of our community.

Our children are our most important visitors to our school and we want it to be a place where everyone can belong, believe and achieve to their fullest potential in their time here.
