Religious Education

Reading

Within our school we follow the Read, Write Inc phonics and reading scheme. For more information please click here

The Challenge Curriculum

As well as the statutory elements that we must teach we are using the "Learning Challenge Curriculum" which is designed to develop questioning and enquiry within the pupils while teaching the requirements of the National Curriculum. Please click here for more information.

Our Computing Vision

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we believe that computational thinking is a key skill in helping children to solve problems, design systems, and begin to understand the technology around them. We believe it is a skill that all pupils should be aware of and develop competence in. Pupils who can think computationally are better able to conceptualise, understand and use computer-based technology, and therefore are better prepared for today’s world and their future.
