Our Reception teacher is Mrs Holmes.
St Joseph's Catholic Primary School offers its pupils a broad and relevant curriculum. The school follows the requirements set out in the statutory framework for the early years foundation stage (2021).
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. Intervention support is offered throughout each year to children for whom this is deemed necessary.
