KCSP Curriculum Intent
I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full
John 10: Chapter 10. V 10.
Inspired by the Gospel values of love, joy and compassion, we nurture and develop the whole child so that each unique individual grows in confidence and has the knowledge and skills to enable them to achieve their true potential.
All children will access a rich, ambitious, challenging curriculum; one that is broad, balanced and relevant, fostering curiosity, creativity and a life-long love of learning. It will prepare them well for each stage of education, employment or training and enable them, as educated citizens, to contribute to creating a better world.
St John's Curriculum Intent
In agreement with KCSP, at St John’s we are aware of the many gifts our children possess and we recognise that it is our responsibility to provide every child a curriculum which enables them to enjoy a rich school experience and to develop their talents. Our aim as a Catholic school, is to inspire everyone in our learning community to grow in their knowledge and understanding and to develop skills that will enrich their life now and in the future. In this mission, we appreciate difference and we celebrate diversity.
Our whole school team strengthen our ethos and vision as we work together to reflect upon our curriculum, share outcomes, decide upon our next steps and continue our learning journey together.
On the 'front line', Class teachers and TAs ensure that classroom practice and subject delivery match our curriculum plans, strategic intentions and Teaching and Learning Policy.
Subject Leaders monitor individual subjects: reviewing learning, evaluating pupil voice, providing individual feedback to move practice forward, celebrating positives, highlighting areas of development and reporting to the school leadership.
Senior Leaders rigorously check implementation and review the curriculum using triangulated monitoring throughout the year to gauge the impact of our curriculum model.
Subject Leaders and Senior Leaders will collectively carry out performance analysis, which is linked to this triangulated monitoring, measuring performance against individual and school targets which are reviewed regularly.
Governors, as part of their overall school scrutiny, monitor curriculum progress and impact via Headteacher Reports, SIP Progress Reviews and their link Portfolio Visits.
