St John’s offers a vibrant curriculum which is designed to inspire a passion for learning. Our goal is to engage and empower children whilst ensuring the skills and requirements of the National Curriculum are covered in a broad and balanced way.
We aim to deliver a curriculum that promotes a positive growth mind-set, which is meaningful and reflects the interests of the children and the world we live in today.
We provide a wide range of enrichment opportunities and ensure children are challenged to build resilience and independence. Lessons are often inquiry based or provide opportunities for higher order thinking and reasoning across all subjects. Children are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and make a contribution to the school and wider community.
The Curriculum for each subject is mapped out in a Learning Pathway document which can be viewed on the subject pages below. These pathways set out what children should know and be able to do by the end of each term. Year Groups may link different areas of learning within threads or topics while other elements may be taught discretely.
If you would like further information about the curriculum, please contact the school.
• ”We are in the process of reviewing our curriculum in light of the impact of Covid 19 and the new National Curriculum for the Early Years Foundation Stage. The learning pathways on each page will be updated as plans are developed and finalised throughout the year.“
