At St John’s CofE Infant School, we are committed to providing a broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum that builds on prior knowledge, skills and understanding. We aim to teach children how to grow into positive, responsible citizens, who can co-operate with others whilst developing the knowledge and skills needed to achieve their full potential.
Our curriculum fulfils the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum, and includes rich learning experiences. We ensure children understand local, national and global issues relevant to their age and stage.
The curriculum is devised to provide stimulating enrichment opportunities such as educational school trips, and to incorporate visitors into school to spark enthusiasm about a subject, or to reinforce information already learned.
We are passionate about the great outdoors as both a superb educational environment and in promoting positive mental health and well-being. As such we include weekly forest school session for every class.
As a CofE school we follow the Diocesan Syllabus for Religious Education, this includes units on exploring other faiths and festivals to provide knowledge about the wider world and acceptance of all. Our curriculum is designed to include diversity in the literature we read, and in the significant people and events we study.
Our learning tools provide us with the language to be able to discuss our learning and recognise the important skills required to achieve the best learning we can. Sticking at it, listening, working together, imagination, noticing, working together, making links and reflecting.
We wish for all our learners to be prepared for the next stage of their development feeling confident and secure in themselves. They should have had every opportunity to develop an enquiring mind and open heart which will allow them to let their light shine.
