Great Harwood St John’s
Statement of Intent for our Curriculum
‘Where everyone shines with God’s love.’
As a Church of England school, our curriculum has Christian values at its heart. It is our intent at Great Harwood St John’s that ALL learners leave our school with a lifelong love of learning and they know that they are loved and treasured as individuals. To enable them to do this our curriculum has been carefully designed around our children, celebrating differences and developing the uniqueness of each child. We recognise children’s starting points and quickly set about developing their phonics, early reading and maths skills through first hand experiences. Throughout their journey with us at St John’s, we shower the children with enrichment opportunities to broaden their horizons and enhance their curiosity about their local community and the world around them. Staff work collaboratively, utilising each other’s expertise to ensure a clear, coherent, well-balanced curriculum made bespoke to us. Ultimately, the day to day decisions of the school are to ensure that the whole child’s needs are met whether this is academic or social and emotional.
