Curriculum

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School follows the national curriculum for all subjects. Our three main intents when teaching our curriculum are:

  1. Cross Curricular – Subjects are taught as distinct subjects and where possible cross curricular links are planned and used.
  2. Experiencology – Children to experience learning through concrete and pictorial representation before abstract learning.
  3. Reasoning – Children to deepen their skills and knowledge through applying them through creative and evaluative learning opportunities.

Within this section you will find each year’s curriculum relating to coverage of all subject areas.

 St. Joseph’s teaches a broad and balanced curriculum which includes or core subjects: English, Math, Science and Religion. For Phonics, St. Joseph’s follows the six phases of teaching outlined in ‘Letters and Sounds: Principles and Practice of High Quality Phonics’St. Francis use Oxford Reading Tree for our main reading scheme.
