At St. James' we have an exciting and engaging curriculum, based on the premise of 'Engage, Empower and Inspire' - please see the attached Curriculum Model document for further details.
Our broad themes are decided by staff and pupils and whilst answering the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014, this is by no means the totality of our curriculum. The jigsaw images provide an overview of the statutory curriculum content for each year group.
Children are encouraged to develop their learning through creating links across and beyond the National Curriculum. As a result are children are excited by their learning, enjoy being in school and talk passionately about what they have achieved.
The reading scheme that is primarily used in Key Stage One is Oxford Reading Tree, although this is supplemented with other resources. In Key Stage Two, Rigby Navigator is used as a stimulus for guided reading sessions.
Our Phonics teaching programme in EYFS and Key Stage One draws upon a range of resources to ensure that teaching is personalised to best suit the needs of our learners.
If you would like further information regarding the curriculum taught at St. James', the 'Learning and Teaching Policy' is available from the School Office. More specific information about what is being taught in each class during each term is also available from your child's class teacher and on the class pages - we hope you find this useful.
