St Joseph's Curriculum Intent

"To live and learn together through our faith in Christ" 


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. 

To this end, our curriculum is based on the Core Knowledge Sequence- all children should complete their primary education with a storehouse of general knowledge, along with the self-confidence and skills to use it.

We have worked closely with Lumen Christi schools to design a content rich curriculum which is coherently sequenced to promote cognitive development and knowledge retention, reflecting current pedagogical thinking and evidence. The curriculum is designed to support all learners and equip our children with sufficient knowledge and skills for their transition to secondary education, future learning and employment.

It is our intention that our curriculum is accessible to all and will promote God’s unique plan for every child.
