Curriculum

At SJS we have a broad and creative curriculum, where our pupils have the opportunity to engage with, and learn about other cultures, historic events, Shakespearean plays and a huge variety of science experiments, in addition to learning form the National Curriculum. Our theme weeks are hugely popular, and the pupils learn and experience new things in creative ways! To view some of our past events, please go to the Gallery. We have a multi-cultural and multi-faith approach to worship and, while our assemblies are broadly Christian in nature, we have a non-denominational approach to religious education, yet we follow the Kent Agreed Syllabus within our curriculum. Every Friday we come together as a team/Wolf Pack and celebrate our individual and team successes.

By providing a broad, inspiring and creative curriculum we aim to develop life long  learners with all the skills necessary to cope with life in the 21st Century. We encourage  positive social behavior with respect for others, be they adults or children; this upholds  our Core Values. We believe that every child has the right to work in a calm, orderly and  secure environment and we endeavour to work in partnership with parents.

All year groups' Curriculum Maps follow the National Curriculum (click to see more about  the NC), and are working documents and the order of coverage may change dependent  upon the outcome of ongoing assessments. A curriculum content overview for each year  group is provided at the start of each academic year at the 'Meet the Teacher' day, below  you can find the coverage for each year group for throughout the year. While some  subjects are taught more discretely, we use a cross-curricular approach in order to  maximise learning. In terms of English and Mathematics, concept coverage may be  linked in order to consolidate and extend learning.
