Our pupils’ backgrounds, our culture and our climate for learning provide the following drivers that underpin all areas of our curriculum:

Self – We want our pupils to be resilient so that they have the confidence to persevere in the face of challenges
Others – We want our pupils to learn about different cultures and religions so that they understand and appreciate cultural diversity beyond their own community
Wider world – We want our pupils to have skills and knowledge to adapt to the ever-changing world
At St John’s we want our rich curriculum:

  • to be underpinned by our school’s SHINE values
  • to encourage pupils to be aspirational and resilient
  • to provide opportunities for pupils to develop academically, creatively, spiritually, physically, personally and socially
  • to provide opportunities to delve deeper into learning, building on knowledge and skills progressively each year
  • to prepare pupils to succeed in their next stage of life
  • to enable pupils to appreciate the world from a range of perspectives
  • to respond to findings from pupil feedback and school data to ensure it is bespoke to the needs of our pupils and reflects the ever changing world, locally and globally
