Curriculum Overview

The curriculum at Stourfield Junior School is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that meets the needs of all pupils and gives them the skills,knowledge and understanding to prepare them for their future lives.

My World, Our World, This World

The thread of My World, Our World and This World runs through our curriculum to translate our vision into one we can all articulate.

We offer an ambitious and coherant curriculum – The Wonderful World – which is wide ranging and builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through Key Stage 2. The curriculum incorporates the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 and other rich experiences and opportunities as well as a direct link with our ‘My World, Our World, This World’ vision. We believe this best meets the learning and developmental needs of the pupils in our school.

The aim of our curriculum is for pupils to have the requisite skills to be successful, independent, motivated, lifelong learners in readiness for their next stage of education. It is important that the curriculum considers the development of the whole child and does not only concentrate on academic success.

At the core of the work that we do in school are our Personal Learning Skills (Adaptability, Enquiry, Resilience, Aspiration, Communication, Thoughtfulness, Cooperation, Respect), skills that we feel will be of benefit to all our pupils, now and in the future.

These skills are referred to both in and out of the classroom and are the focus of assemblies and work across the curriculum. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and their understanding of the core values of our society are woven throughout The Wonderful World Curriculum and our Wider World Days.
