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 our children, our context 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 with ‘Big Questions’ promoting 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 and how their learning will progress as they move through the school. Key concepts and subject specific skills are revisited regularly throughout the pathways so that children have opportunities to make links and build on prior learning. Year Groups may link different areas of learning within topics, while other elements may be taught discretely.
