The curriculum at St John’s is designed to provide all pupils with a challenging, broad and balanced education that enables all of them to reach their full potential, discover their talents and to prepare them to be responsible, 21st Century Christians. It is our vision that we shape our children so that they understand how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society, with an awareness of the challenges we face as human beings. The Gospel Values of love, respect, generosity, creativity, responsibility and justice are at the heart of all we do at St John’s and our curriculum aims to make these real and relevant in every area of school life. This is echoed in our mission statement – Loving to learn; Learning to Love.
A topic based approach to learning, encompassing high quality creative subject delivery across the curriculum,
Our curriculum design ensures that the needs of individual and small groups of children can be met within the environment of high quality first wave teaching, supported by targeted, tailored interventions where appropriate. Enjoyment of the curriculum is demonstrated through the children’s high achievements, excellent attendance, their confidence and exemplary behaviour. Our data reflects this with attainment consistently above national and local results. Children feel safe, happy and loved at St John’s.
