We believe the DJS Curriculum must:
Reflect our school values and rights respecting ethos.
Have SMSC development at its core.
Be cross-curricular, showing children how subjects link together to provide a comprehensive learning experience.
Incorporate taught ‘Learning Behaviour’ to give children a toolkit of strategies to help them access the curriculum such as emotional
intelligence, perseverance and adaptability.
Be context- based! We want learning experiences to be meaningful, useful and teach skills that can and will be used in the real world.
Make links with home and family. We want to involve all our pupils' families in the learning journey, making use of their knowledge and experiences as much as we can through homework projects, sharing classroom based learning and inviting them in as speakers.
