Over a number of years, St John’s has taken important decisions around building a curriculum that is right for our school and unique to our young learners. The school recognised the need to bring the curriculum to life, instilling awe and wonder in the children and recognised that it is a curriculum that is constantly developing.
The school also wanted it’s motto of:
‘Living, loving together in God’s World’ – ‘Let all that you do be done in love’ :1 Corinthians 14-16
to be reflected in the curriculum provision. The school wanted to place reading at the heart of the curriculum.
The core areas at St John’s are: Religious Education, English, Maths, Science and Computing
The Foundation Subjects are; History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology, Music, Spanish, PSHCE and P.E.
Our Christian Values of Love, Hope and Respect create a thread throughout all our teaching and learning.
