National Curriculum- Year 1 to year 6

We are currently reviewing our curriculum, please bear with us whilst we work on updating our subject and class long term plans- we will upload them to this website as soon as they are finished. 


We have built our curriculum to ensure our children develop the knowledge and skills to prepare them for life and work in the 21st Century. We are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum which inspires and engages- sparking a passion towards learning as well as allowing children to develop spiritually and in their faith. 


Our school ethos underpins teaching and learning in all subject areas-

Our St. John’s family nurtures a culture of Christian love and respect for each other and the world around us. Through togetherness, patience and compassion is encouraged. By providing creative experiences and challenge for all learners, children grow in resilience, learn to persevere and develop belief in themselves and build hopes and dreams for their future.

Head, hands and heart is a focus for our planning across the foundation subjects asking the questions- What knowledge do you have? What skills can you develop? What are you passionate about that you can share now and in the future?

Have a look at our class long term plans which show our amazing and exciting themes which allow our teachers to make links between subjects to make learning purposeful and exciting. Explorers, Discoverers and Inventors are mixed year groups in which children spend two years this means a two year planning cycle is in place. Adventurers is a single class.

We hope you are all enjoying the holidays in the beautiful sunshine- don't forget to take a photograph of an amazing thing in God's wonderful world. Wherever you visit- near or far look at God's fabulous creations, take a photograph and email it into school or print it out so we can create a beautiful display!
