We follow the National Curriculum at St John Bosco; adapting it and adding to it to make it suitable for our children from Nursery to Year 6. Subjects are taught discretely. We offer a broad, balanced and academically rigorous curriculum for all our children with the intent of closing the gap between the advantaged and disadvantaged.
We are ambitious for all our children including those with SEND (see SEND policy). We value the pursuit and acquisition of powerful knowledge; this translates into a knowledge- rich curriculum. The curriculum design is informed and driven by research regarding how memory works to ensure that children are taught in a way that ensures children can remember the curriculum content in future years.
The St John Bosco curriculum prepares our children for the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century and raises aspirations to empower our children to add to the body of knowledge in the future.. We are a silver Rights Respecting School and believe that children have the right to become the best they can be (article 29 UNCRC).
