St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Curriculum

St Joseph's Catholic Primary School offers its pupils a broad and relevant curriculum.

The school follows the requirements set out in the National Curriculum for England (2014). 

As far as possible, the content within this is taught through a number of well-planned themes in which teachers attempt to link aspects of the curriculum together in a meaningful way. A thematic approach to curriculum design provides a more holistic learning experience for children. Some learning occurs outside of the thematic approach. Mathematics tends to be taught independently as do subjects such as PE and music. Where possible, some of the learning in these subjects is applied within the themes where appropriate.

Subjects taught:

English, Maths, Science, RE, History, Geography, French, Art, D & T, IT & Computing, P.S.H.E., R.H.E., Music & PE.

Parents can find more information about the curriculum covered by clicking on the year groups and looking at the curriculum map.

At St Joseph’s we use the ‘The Way, The Truth & The Life’ Religious Education programme from EYFS to Year 6.
