Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

 

One definition of curriculum is, "All that a child experiences in school, both planned and unplanned." If you take that definition then the whole of this website is about curriculum!  Please keep a careful eye on the calendar page to see how vibrant our school is.

Your child's year group pages will have specific curriculum information and website links for that age group and the "Our Catholic School" section hosts the latest news about R.E. and our Catholic life.  

“Letters and Sounds” is our phonics scheme and we use banded reading books (Oxford Reading Tree) in the Lower Phase and Year 2.

 

Our school expansion resulted in a fantastic campus for primary education with endless specialist facilities. Which other primary school is fortunate enough to have specialist facilities?  At St Joseph's we have:

An art studio

A dance studio

A music classroom

A music instrumental room

A sensory room

A MUGA  (multi use games area)

Three hall spaces

Excellent playground provision

An outstanding Early Years learning environment

Superb class and group teaching spaces

Fast Wi-Fi throughout the school and computers in every classroom

 

In addition, we have specialist teaching for Spanish and music (from Year 1), swimming (Year 3) and visiting music instrument teachers and choir leaders.

 

A traditional school with forward thinking teaching strategies
