Curriculum

The Government published the National Curriculum (Pdf, 1.2mb) in 2014 which as a school we follow.

It includes resources such as word lists and spelling lists etc. for different year groups in English, and gradually classes will be moving towards embedding these requirements and putting them into practice.

Mathematics also contains much information about what is required to be taught, and information about how children will be assessed on their knowledge will take place at the end of each Key Stage.  Information on this has yet to be finalised through government guidelines.

Your class teacher will provide you with information regarding any new requirements when it becomes effective, as different year groups will adopt the new curriculum at different times, as per the government guidelines.

All schools are required to publish their own distinctive School Curriculum, incorporating the National Curriculum which we are currently developing at St. John's. This will give a year group by year group overview of how we plan to deliver this in our school.

Children

Pupils’ exceptional progress is maintained in Years 1 and 2. Standards at the end of Key Stage 1 are well-above average, particularly in reading and mathematics, and rapidly improving in writing.

Pupils’ exceptional progress is sustained throughout Years 3 to 6. The present Year 6 pupils are on track to reach similar high standards in English and mathematics to those of previous years.

Our Community

Parents and carers, staff and pupils are all very positive about the behaviour in the school and the care and respect children have for each other. One child said, ‘This school is like a family.’

Pupils have a very positive attitude to learning. They want to do well and they appreciate the help they are given. They do not give up when the work is more difficult; instead they try harder.
