The Curriculum at St John’s provides opportunities for children to develop as independent, inquisitive, confident, successful learners with high aspirations. Our aim is to provide our children with an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that ignites and inspires curiosity about the wider world to help them develop their skills to become innovators of tomorrow.
Our KS1 curriculum is designed to: recognise children’s prior learning, provide first-hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience and become creative, critical thinkers. There is a high focus on developing children’s moral, spiritual, social and cultural understanding through our Christian values.
Every child is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. We constantly provide enrichment opportunities to engage learning. We believe that childhood should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time in our lives, where there are no limits to curiosity and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge.
Our curriculum is delivered through a variety of methods, including:
- Real life experiences and enrichment days
- Classroom-based learning
- Small groups and 1:1
- Using a variety of different learning resources and equipment to broaden and deepen knowledge
- Making cross-curricular links where possible
- Enrichment activities
- Extra-curricular clubs
