St John’s Primary School Curriculum
At St John’s Primary School, we are committed to following the programmes of study as required by the National Curriculum 2014. We ensure that our children can develop as literate, numerate and technologically competent individuals, within a broad, balanced, exciting and challenging curriculum. We provide rich and varied contexts and experiences for pupils to acquire, develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, skills and understanding, focusing on depth of learning and mastery of content. This enables teachers to remain with subjects/topics for longer, ensuring pupils have mastered the content before accelerating into new material.
Our cross curricular approach to learning means some subjects are taught through a topic and some are covered as discrete subjects. This enables us to ensure balance and progression across the school and to identify cross curricular links and opportunities for educational visits. Our curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical, mental and emotional development of our pupils. We recognise the needs and aspirations of all individuals and provide opportunities for all pupils to make the best possible progress and attain the highest personal achievements.
