Curriculum Overview and Links
Our school curriculum aims to help each child to realise his/her maximum potential in a safe and happy environment.
Our mission statement and the religious teaching of the school informs planning and delivery of all subjects. We have high expectations for every child. We expect our children to be involved in setting their own targets and to work hard to discover their best ways of learning.
At St Michael and St John’s we engage children in learning by linking National Curriculum subjects into exciting topic areas or themes. Each year group has a ‘Curriculum Topic Grid’ for each half term.
We follow the statutory National Curriculum and build the objectives from this curriculum into topics for each year group. We use a range of resources when planning our curriculum and tailor these resources to meet the needs of our children. Everything we do is underpinned by our unique curriculum ‘driver’ which was created by all staff and following pupil discussion. Early Years children (Reception class) follow the EYFS Framework.

Our Curriculum ‘Driver’
With faith at the heart of our curriculum at St. Michael & St. John’s, we will appreciate, understand and utilise the diverse culture, history and geography of our unique environment. We will prepare our children through memorable experiences for their role, in an ever changing society.
As we continue to develop the curriculum, ‘Pupil Voice’ will be fundamental to our developments as we review with children and staff the topics they have enjoyed learning through and what/how they would like to learn in the future.
We send home half termly class newsletters to keep parents fully informed about their children’s learning and to advise them how they can help their children. Working in partnership with parents is a priority in school.
