At St. John's we deliver the whole National Curriculum expectation. Please click on the images below for details of each subject. However, our school curriculum is more than the National Curriculum alone: it is everything that a school does to contribute to the development of each and every child from the time it opens to the time it closes each day.
Recognising this fact, we have developed a knowledge-rich curriculum that seeks to serve our vision of Future Readiness through 'Curriculum sequencing'. All the subjects from National Curriculum are taught where expectations often go beyond its scope to equip our pupils with essential future-ready skills. Our children are enjoying learning and are able to make links between the various curricular subjects and how they all build to a real-life end outcome.
The 'Curriculum ' goes beyond the National Curriculum to incorporate the following key values:- metacognition and self-regulated learning, teamwork, our school's values and British Values, managing feelings and behaviours, managing relationships, cultural appreciation, managing time and resources, global awareness and responsibility.
The curriculum is underpinned by, and designed to enhance, our seven core attitudes to learning: self-belief, inquisitiveness, positivity, resilience, thoughtfulness, respect and independence. Through consultation with all stakeholders, these were found to be the most important values to being a good learner. By being Thoughtful and Respectful learners, our Christian ethos is at the heart of who we are and who we aim to be.
Curriculum linked Educational visits are arranged throughout the year that build on the themes children are learning within school.
