Our Curriculum Intent
Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed to provide rich learning opportunities to engage and inspire our children and deepen their knowledge and skills whilst making links to the community and real world beyond. By following the children’s interests and providing a purposeful learning stimulus, we develop resilience, curiosity and a thirst for learning where the children are encouraged to be a leader in their own learning. We support and guide our pupils in being ambitious and inquisitive at every stage of our learning journey.
We highly value the impact of vocabulary and embed deep learning around this in all subjects to support pupils in being able to communicate their ideas effective and confidently. With Christ at the centre, we teach our children to be respectful towards themselves, others and all of God’s world.
Curriculum Milestones and Essentials
At St Joseph’s, we are proud of our creative curriculum which provides a rich and exciting stimulus where high quality opportunities take into account the interests and experiences of our children. Through personalised learning within a safe and happy environment, each child can develop their skills and celebrate their talents. We ensure that we teach a broad and balanced curriculum which meets the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and treat all subjects as equally important. We follow the essential milestones for each subject which ensures excellent subject coverage and progression for a full spectrum curriculum.
