At Sandwich Junior School we have a broad and creative curriculum, where our pupils have the opportunity to engage with, and learn about other cultures, historic events, Shakespearean plays and a huge variety of science experiments, in addition to learning form the National Curriculum. Our theme weeks are hugely popular, and the pupils learn and experience new things in creative ways! We have a multi-cultural and multi-faith approach to worship and have a non-denominational approach to religious education, whilst following the Kent Agreed Syllabus within our curriculum. Every Friday we come together as a team / Wolf Pack and celebrate our individual and team successes.
By providing a broad, inspiring and creative curriculum we aim to develop life long learners with all the skills necessary to cope with life in the 21st Century. We encourage positive social behavior with respect for others, be they adults or children; this upholds our Core Values. We believe that every child has the right to work in a calm, orderly and secure environment and we endeavour to work in partnership with parents.
All year groups' Curriculum Maps follow the National Curriculum (click to see more about the NC). They are working documents and the order of coverage may change dependent upon the outcome of ongoing assessments. A curriculum content overview for each year group is provided at the start of each academic year at the 'Meet the Teacher' day. While some subjects are taught more discretely, we use a cross-curricular approach in order to maximise learning. In terms of English and Mathematics, concept coverage may be linked in order to consolidate and extend learning.
