Curriculum Intent

Resilience, Empathy, Self-Aware, Positivity, Empathy, Communication, Teamwork

At the heart of the Overchurch Junior School curriculum, we want our children to be confident, considerate learners. Our outstanding curriculum, which is built around knowledge and skills, is designed to go beyond the academic and break down barriers. Through our new approach, where we block-teach subjects, we build on what has been taught before and towards agreed end points, showcasing children’s achievements.  The curriculum is carefully designed, planned and sequenced to meet the need of our pupils. The development of literacy skills, particularly reading is fundamental to our curriculum. The key characteristics of RESPECT run throughout our curriculum.

In planning the curriculum, we asked ourselves how can we empower our children to be the best versions of themselves.
