St. John’s Church of England Academy
Our Curriculum Vision: The St John’s Approach
Discover Captivate Excite Challenge Flourish
At St John’s Church of England Academy, we will excite, engage and inspire pupils with a relevant, inclusive and memorable curriculum that makes learning irresistible. We will ignite children's curiosity, raising aspirations and instilling a passion for lifelong learning. At the heart of their learning, children at our school will develop an understanding the core values we’ve developed as a community, the core values that we believe make our school special, the core values that will allow our children to shine and grow into respectful, global citizens.
Our core values are:
Alongside our core values, we will be relentless in our desire for all pupils to become independent self-regulating learners and we will provide regular ‘WOW’ moments for our children to have fun, encounter challenges and develop problem-solving strategies whilst planning, monitoring and evaluating their own learning. Children will leave St John’s equipped with a range of strategies that will enable them to access future learning in a variety of ways - overcoming barriers to learning through resilience and perseverance, and achieving great success. Children will know how to live a healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally.
Our ‘Topic’ curriculum will cover statutory objectives from the National Curriculum with the key knowledge, skills and vocabulary carefully mapped out and built upon over time. Children will be encouraged to re-visit prior learning and then delve even deeper, building on the skills and knowledge taught progressively each year. We are confident that this will lead all children at our school to flourish– both academically and personally, throughout our curriculum, within their school life and beyond.
