Our curriculum intent is embedded in our vision of enabling all children to flourish and prosper by uniting as a community of learners.
At St James and St John Church of England Primary School we are committed to providing our pupils with a creative, stimulating and challenging curriculum that will equip them with the skills, knowledge and learning experiences that will provide a solid foundation for their journey of life-long learning.
We believe in the development of the ‘whole child’ and our school values of kindness, respect, collaboration, resilience, aspiration, courage and friendship are integral to our aim of helping children develop their social and moral code. These Christian school values are what we live and breathe within our school and are incorporated into our learning opportunities.
We are committed to meeting the requirements of the Primary National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. Our schemes of work are specifically designed to reflect the content and challenge of these curricula.
Staff, governors and parents are committed to providing the best education and experience for each child equipping them with the skills to face the challenges of the 21st Century and be good, caring citizens.
Our broad and balanced curriculum takes into account our location, our cohort of children and the opportunities our community can offer. Through a combination of the learning experiences developed in our curriculum, collective worship and everyday school life we will embrace equality and diversity, encouraging all learners to be kind and respectful. Everyone in our school community will always be valued equally. We welcome children who have their own unique needs and require a more personalised approach to our inclusive, nurturing and happy school.
Through using a variety of resources, our curriculum is designed to encourage children to flourish and prosper - with many lightbulb moments along the way. Our children will learn to become resilient and embrace mistakes in a safe and supportive environment that encourages them to go above and beyond. The resources we use have been carefully selected to engage and challenge our children in their learning. We will strive to provide our children with a clear structure and progression in their learning journey.
