At St Joseph’s we want to celebrate the gift of the human imagination. We want our children to experience a broad and balanced curriculum that enriches them, sparks their curiosity and educates their whole being. Our curriculum aims to give children opportunities beyond the classroom and to prepare them for their lives ahead.
‘that they may have life and have it to the full’ John 10:10
As our children grow throughout their time at St Joseph’s, our dream for them is to be:
Our curriculum is sequenced and structured so that children gain knowledge, practise and develop skills at each stage of their education. We aim to make our curriculum relevant and meaningful to the children, linking learning and building on prior knowledge.
Please check our class pages for regular updates. Please also refer to the Curriculum Letter sent out by your child's class teacher for a more detailed explanation of the subjects covered in each term. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any other questions.
