Curriculum Intent at St John Fisher Catholic Primary School
At St John Fisher School, senior leaders, staff and governors place great importance on providing a curriculum that develops the whole child.
Through our core values:
- We welcome, respect and nourish each individual as a unique creation of God.
- We set high standards and celebrate the achievements of everyone.
- We are passionate about developing enthusiastic, lifelong learners who relish challenge.
- We develop children who are well prepared for life in modern society with confidence, resilience and tolerance.
- We promote personal and spiritual growth through prayer and reflection.
We foster an environment where the physical, academic, social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of each child is considered carefully. We do this alongside nurturing their emotional and mental well-being through a carefully planned PSHE curriculum.
Our curriculum has been carefully mapped to include coverage of the National Curriculum whilst also providing a range of enrichment experiences for our pupils. Our curriculum is designed to challenge, engage and motivate, with the ultimate goal that our learners progress academically and become successful, confident individuals, who make a positive contribution to the community and society - both now and in the future. At St John Fisher School, we believe every child must be given the opportunity to succeed, so we ensure learning opportunities are well-planned to overcome any learning barriers. All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background.
As a school, we base our learning on a broad and balanced curriculum and deliver wide and varied learning experiences, which are memorable and contextual. We are fully committed to developing each child's unique potential within a secure and caring environment. We use a range of resources to deliver the curriculum and aim to provide an exciting and enlightening learning experience for our children. We believe that our children should not only reach their best academically, but also develop a thirst for knowledge, foster a love of learning and leave our school with exceptional independent learning skills, ready to move on to secondary school.
