At St John’s Walworth we are committed to ensuring that every child experiences an engaging, exciting and empowering curriculum that prepares them for their next step, both in education and the wider world. We recognise that all children are unique and bring different experiences to our school community, which we believe is a strength and the starting point for all learning.
Through well planned learning sequences, we offer children a balanced and broad curriculum that teaches the skills and knowledge they need, but also allows children to find their passion and excel, which, in turn, supports all areas of their learning. We also recognise the importance of developing resilience, creative thinking, and personal development through our taught curriculum and pastoral support; all of which is underpinned by our Christian ethos and school values.
Our curriculum is planned to offer a thematic approach where possible, whilst recognising where curriculum content needs to taught discretely, because we believe this helps children to see connections and understand the relevance of their learning. We track and evaluate our curriculum carefully, in order to ensure that our coverage is thorough and all children make progress.
Alongside the statutory curriculum, we offer children a range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities, because we recognise the importance of a holistic approach to learning in order for children to become life-long learners.
