As a larger than average local authority maintained junior school, we follow the National Curriculum for Key Stage 2. The school's catchment is situated in the second most deprived index nationally and over 85% of our children speak English as an additional language. We have identified barriers to learning and have designed our curriculum to provide, through inspiring and engaging experiences, the knowledge and skills for our children to become independent, life-long learners. We continually review and adapt our curriculum to provide a total communication approach.
At CJS, using the National Curriculum to underpin how subjects are sequenced, planned, and assessed, we have designed a progressive and well-sequenced knowledge-based curriculum. The programmes of study meet the expectations of the National Curriculum whilst also recognising the adaptations required to meet the needs of our children. This includes a clear focus on these four foundations:
Our foundation curriculum is designed to give our children the opportunity to revisit learning, allowing them to build schema and effectively transfer information from their working memory to their long term memory.
More information about how our school complies with the Equality Act 2010, our Equality and Diversity Policy and our school Equality Objectives can be found in our Equality Objectives and Statement policy. We teach children about protected characteristics through Everyone’s Welcome and PSHE lessons.
