Curriculum Information

National Curriculum 

At SJS we follow the National Curriculum programmes of study in all year groups. You can find out more about the National Curriculum by visiting this link:

The following is a useful guide for parents on the National Curriculum

The next documents present an outline of the content of the new National Curriculum and our locally agreed syllabus for RE. Core subjects (English, Maths & Science) are presented in a year-by-year format, based on the outlines given in the National Curriculum.

SJS Curriculum Learning Journey - SJS's Learning Ladders

 

At SJS we ensure that our curriculum has a clear learning journey across all year groups, by using a progressive set of learning objectives for each subject. These targets build on the learning the children have done in the previous year(s), which not only allows the previous learning to become more embedded, but also gives the children a good foundation of knowledge to build their new learning from. We work closely with the local infant school to ensure that the SJS curriculum builds directly from the KS1 curriculum targets the children will have learnt before they start at SJS.

 

Our curriculum has highlighted non- negotiable objectives that every child must achieve by the end of the year and a range of other targets that the child will cover most, but not all of. Again, these highlighted targets are progressive and build on the targets from the previous year(s).

 

By the end of KS2 our aim is for all the children at SJS to have covered, achieved and embedded all the National Curriculum objectives for each subject.

RE Programme of Study

Our approach to teaching RE at SJS

At SJS we believe that for the children to really engage with RE, it must first and foremost relate to the child. We teach RE themed around religious themes, such as Celebrations, Prayer, Holy Places, Journeys etc… which allows us to draw in a range of different religions and compare and contrast them. By teaching through themed topics, rather than individual religions, it allows the children to reflect on how these themes relate to their own lives, thus giving them a greater understanding of why they are important to religions. Over the course of their time at SJS, the children will have looked at all the major world religions on numerous occasions, linking them to their own beliefs or experiences.
