Access to a Broad and Balanced Curriculum
At St Joseph’s we believe children learn best when they are interested, motivated, actively engaged and have ownership of their learning. To support children in this we endeavour to consistently provide effective, high quality teaching and are proactive in continually adopting and developing a range of teaching and learning strategies which allow children to learn in ways that meet their needs and ensure they achieve. Our teaching and learning stem from Come and See (our Religious Education curriculum), The National Curriculum and The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. All children work at a level and pace suitable for their ability.

Curriculum Topic Plans
Assessment is at the heart of promoting children’s learning. It effectively measures children’s achievements against clearly defined objectives and supports children in recognising the progress they have made and determines what they need to do next. The assessment of children with SEND does not fundamentally differ from that of other children but targets are likely to be more specific and review of children’s progress may take place more regularly. In addition, parents/carers will also be involved in this process.
Extra Curricular Activities
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 SEN Information Report.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
