We believe that the purpose of education is to support formation, it is about creating a sense of wonder and awe and opening doors to all sorts of possibilities. The journey is therefore as important as the destination in terms of ensuring goodness: human flourishing. 

We believe that to achieve this, our curriculum should be broad and balanced; it should build knowledge, encourage independence, curiosity and creativity; produce collaborators, innovators, leaders and, above all, it should help our children to understand what it means to be human.

There is more information in our termly curriculum overviews​ for parents/carers, curriculum maps, directories and policies all available in the curriculum section. 


Our SJF curriculum aims to provide an exciting curriculum that:

  • enthuses, engages and motivates all children
  • fosters and encourages natural curiosity, enquiring minds and deep enthusiasm for learning
  • enables each child to thrive and achieve their full potential
  • empowers children to develop resilience and courage
  • embeds, in all children, the attitudes and behaviours necessary for them to be lifelong learners

we aim to provide a safe and secure environment that enables all children to work and play and be encouraged to develop moral values and healthy respect for others.

Our curriculum aims to:  

  • facilitate positive links to our children’s cultural backgrounds and heritage
  • foster strong links between home and school, rooted in the conviction that parents/carers are the first educators, so that we enable, encourage and support them to be active in their children’s school lives and learning
  • provides our children with an education that gives them with a solid foundation for the rest of their lives that enables them to grow to be happy and confident citizens, respectful of themselves and others – and with the personal qualities necessary to drive them forwards in the pursuit of their dreams and ambitions, including confidence, courage motivation and resilience.
