Curriculum

 

 

St John Fisher Catholic Primary School follows the National Curriculum - this is the statutory primary national curriculum, including programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects at key stages 1 and 2, except languages which are only studied at key stage 2. It is issued by law and schools must follow it unless there is good reason not to.

The curriculum here at St John Fisher Catholic Primary School is built on creativity and enjoyment. Our creative curriculum is carefully planned into topics which encompasses subjects across the whole curriculum. Our aim is to support children's natural curiosity and stimulate their imagination. Topics are planned on a two-year cycle; Year A and Year B and where possible are organised to coincide with nationwide and worldwide events and celebrations.

Pupils in reception are taught in accordance with the Department for Education's early years foundation stage guidance.

Our curriculum offers children the opportunity to work in depth, giving them the time they need to reflect, consolidate and transfer their learning.  Regular maths, reading, grammar and phonic lessons take place regularly throughout the week.

Each term topic plans are sent to parents to provide further details for their child's year group. These can be reviewed on the classes page of our website under the 'Children' tab. If you require further information please speak to your child's class teacher or contact Ms Carbon, our Principal.
