The ‘basic’ school curriculum includes the ‘national curriculum’, as well as religious education and sex education.
The Early Years Foundation Stage is followed in Nursery and Reception more information can be found here.
The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.
The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS). At the end of each key stage, the teacher will formally assess your child’s performance. Our school includes Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. (R-Y6)
To find out more information on the curriculum for key stages 1 and 2 please see the Government website here or contact the school to make an appointment to speak with Mrs Ashton or your child’s Class Teacher.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. The Curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the Teaching, Learning and the Curriculum section of the SEND Information Report.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
