Primary School

Inspired by St. Gilbert, as God's family, we are growing strong in love and faith, becoming the best we can be.


St Gilbert's Curriculum 


At St Gilbert's R.C. Primary School the most important underlying principle of a curriculum is to help children learn. We believe that a successful curriculum is brought to life by high quality teaching, inspirational learning activities and opportunities to listen and plan for the developing interests and motivations of children. 


To find out more about the curriculum your child is following please look on the curriculum maps for each year group below or speak to your child's teacher.

Our R.E. Curriculum is taken from the Scheme 'Come and see' as recommended by the Salford Diocese.
