St James' Curriculum


Our Curriculum was re-written in September 2015, in response to the newly published National Curriculum. We reviewed this again in 2016. We use the following published/online resources/schemes to support our curriculum:


Inspire Maths



Talk for Writing

Big Writing

Rising Stars science, French & PE

Herts for Learning computing

Jigsaw RE

Jigsaw PSHME

Purple Mash

Charanga Music


A summary of our curriculum plans can be found here.


Every term, we send home a curriculum update so that parents can join in on their child's learning journey.


During the 2019-2020 academic year, we are committed to further reviewing and re-drafting our curriculum, in order to ensure we stay focused on continuing whole school improvement and development. We expect the first draft of this curriculum to be complete by Easter 2020, with a full roll out from September 2020. As part of this review, we have agreed our overall vision for the curriculum, which is linked to the four quadrants used by Schools of Tomorrow.
