We aim to ensure that our children  leave our school with a love of learning. We will do this through providing high quality memorable learning opportunities (experiencology) in all curriculum areas and by encouraging all children to find their ‘voice’. This we believe will improve their life chances.

The school aims to provide a knowledge rich curriculum in a safe learning environment which enables every child to look forward to and be ready for their next stage of education. This curriculum will cover spiritual, academic, physical, artistic, emotional and social education. Through clear Schemes of Work for all subjects, we ensure that learning for all is progressive and sequential. In addition, reading and vocabulary are emphasised in all subjects. These schemes show a clear structure of knowledge and skills which show defined progression and coverage in all subjects. Core skills for each year groups are outlined and recall of this essential knowledge/skills is linked with the children’s current learning. To ensure good progress our pedagogy reflects evidence informed learning which vouches for overlearning through repetition, modelling and scaffolding of learning. Thus, key concepts become embedded in the long-term memory.

This is also complimented by our range of high quality learning opportunities beyond the school day to further enhance children learning experiences.

St. Joseph’s is very proud of the broad and balanced curriculum which includes or core subjects: English, Maths, Science and Religion.
