Please find below information about the way our curriculum is taught. Parents or other members of the public can find out more about our curriculum by contacting the school.


The National Curriculum is taught at St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School as in all maintained schools. Links are made where possible to the children’s learning in English and Mathematics in order to provide them with meaningful contexts and purposeful opportunities to learn and apply their skills.


Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which helps children to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes which fully prepare them for the next stage of their education and later life in modern Britain.

Reading Scheme



We use a combination of Letters and Sounds and Phonics Play, an online tool, to teach phonics. It is taught across the 3 classes; Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 at 9:00am for 20 minutes every day. We have developed a consistent approach to the teaching which is Lead by Mrs Stanton the KS1 Lead.

We provide booster groups for those children who need it, some during and some after school.
