At St Joseph’s, our curriculum intends to give children in our care the opportunity to’ be the best that they can be’ ensuring they have fantastic memorable visits/experiences both in and out of the classroom. We want our children to develop a love of learning which enhances their knowledge and skills but also develop a lifelong curiosity for English. We aim to do this in a learning environment where all feel welcome, safe and secure so that they can live life to the full.

The teaching of spelling is consistent across Year groups 1-6 as we use the Rising Stars spelling scheme which includes spelling homework and weekly assessments.
