St James’ Curriculum Intent
In the loving peace, justice and joy of Jesus, we achieve.
Our mission statement is the starting point of our curriculum intention. Every child is a child of God. Every child deserves to succeed and experience the joy of their God given gifts as they come to learn to serve others for the benefit of all.
Our intention is that the curriculum is ambitious and aims to give all children, particularly the most disadvantaged, the knowledge, cultural capital and experiences they need to fulfil their potential and succeed in life.
Our curriculum has been carefully planned. It is coherent and sequenced and designed to support all learners and equip our children with sufficient knowledge and skills for their transition to secondary education, future learning and employment.
The curriculum content is carefully chosen to promote cognitive development and knowledge retention reflecting current pedagogical thinking and evidence.
It is our intention that our curriculum is accessible to all and will promote God’s unique plan for every child.
