St James' Curriculum


Our Curriculum was re-drafted in September 2019, based upon Chris Quigley's materials and finalized during 2020/2021 academic year.  During 2021/2022, we will be completing a full review of EYFS curriculum to ensure it meets the requirements of the new EYFS materials, and also to ensure that each subject is reflected in the EYFS curriculum and that there is good progression from the EYFS into the National Curriculum.

We use the following published/online resources/schemes to support our curriculum:


White Rose maths



Talk for Writing

Rising Stars  PE

Understanding Christianity

Jigsaw PSHME

Charanga Music

Read, Write Inc

Ashley Booth's reading programme

Google Be Internet Legends

National Oak Academy - French lessons

Chris Quigley Curriculum documents

Design & Technology Association


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