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.


Each year group follows learning threads which link different areas of learning. Each thread is flexible enough to allow learning to follow the children’s needs and interests; some elements may be taught discretely.


If you would like further information about the curriculum, please contact the school.
