Curriculum  »  Our Curriculum

Here at St. Joseph’s we provide an engaging curriculum which is taught through a well-balanced and stimulating topic approach.
Our bespoke curriculum has been developed in partnership with Will Ryan who specialises in advising schools on new and dynamic ways to engage children in their learning. Our curriculum creates learning experiences which develop skills to help children to achieve across all subject areas. Our Autumn Term topic was entitled ‘Fire and Ice’ and following the success of this, we move onto our Spring Term topic which will see the children learning about ‘Adventures and Explorers’.
To find a more detailed plan of your child’s class topic, go to the Year by Year Overview page in the Curriculum Section of the website. This follows the Primary National Curriculum which can be found by following this link:
