Curriculum and Learning
Our curriculum is fully comprehensive and incorporates the statutory requirements of the Jersey Curriculum (2014). Through the broad and balanced curriculum, we provide our pupils with meaningful learning opportunities and experiences (not limited to the classroom) which are taught with the consideration to the needs of all learners.
The aim of our curriculum is to equip our pupils with the requisite skills, care and respect to be successful, independent and resilient learners with a passion for life-long learning.
At our school we provide a rich and varied learning environment and range of experiences that allow children to develop their skills and abilities.
At St Saviour’s School we believe pupils learn best when:
- learning activities are well planned, ensuring progress in the short, medium and long term
- teaching and learning activities enthuse, engage and motivate them to learn, when they demonstrate the St Saviour learner traits
- assessment informs teaching so that there is provision for support, consolidation and extension of learning for each pupil
- the learning environment is ordered, the atmosphere is purposeful and pupils feel safe and they are supported to be ready to learn
- there are strong links between home and school, and the importance of parental involvement in their child’s learning and development is recognised, valued and nurtured.
The Jersey Curriculum sets out what must be taught in maths, English and science lessons which will take up a substantial part of a child’s learning week. Alongside these are other 'foundation subjects': art, computing, design and technology, French, geography, history, music, PSHE (including Citizenship), physical education as well as religious education.
