What is the curriculum like at St Mark's C of E Junior School?
"Where children enjoy learning: achieving all that God created them to be."
We strive to create a curriculum that it suited to individual need, interest and ability so as to fulfil every child's potential and dreams. Every pupil will have access to a broad, balanced, differentiated and, above all, inspiring curriculum.
We deliver a curriculum that leads to high standards of attainment and progress across the school whilst also increasing children’s experiences, motivating them about learning and stimulating curiosity and a desire to learn more.
We believe in the importance of teaching children how to be independent learners through the 5 point plan - this will be different in each class (the children have ownership of their plans) but follows on from the Purple Learner ethos at Benhall. As an example: B.R.A.I.N:
B - be prepared with my equipment
R - have I read any resources around me?
A - ask a buddy for help
I - am I using my intelligence (what I already know)?
N - above all, never give up!
As a result, behaviour for learning (perseverance, resilience, being confident to take a risk without fear of failure etc.) is very good. We endeavour to enable children to become lifelong learners and to prepared for the future.
