Curriculum

At Sandwich Junior School 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! We have a multi-cultural and multi-faith approach to worship and have a non-denominational approach to religious education, whilst following 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). They 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. 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. 

Our Values

At Sandwich Junior School, the pupils and staff uphold our Core Values, which are at the centre of our school ethos and all that we do. They were first established by the pupils of our school, who chose specific animals that they felt represented the values and attitudes they should show every day, at school and at home:



The Wolf

Working together as a Wolf Pack, we are a team. Helping peers in difficult times, and celebrating our successes.

The Salmon

We always try our best, we are resolute and we never give up. We are always striving to reach the top and take risks with learning, as that is when we make our biggest leaps forward.

The Eagle

Aiming high to achieve the best we can be, and soaring high to reach our potential.

The Dolphin

When children enjoy their learning, they will achieve more.
