BCJS Curriculum

At BCJS we strive to ensure that:
  •  
each pupil receives the best education possible and achieves the highest standards.
  •  
the curriculum is broad and balanced
  •  
the curriculum is matched to the individual needs of the child
  •  
the curriculum helps children develop the key knowledge, skills and attitudes that they need to be a fully functioning members of society
  •  
pupils develop a positive attitude towards school and that the curriculum helps foster a lifelong love of learning
  •  
the curriculum raises the confidence and self-esteem of all children, challenging them to reach their full potential.

 

 We achieve this by:
  •  
teaching subjects discretely and focusing on the skills, knowledge and understanding needed for that subject.
  •  
linking the topics for each subject within the year group to ensure continuity and relevance.
  •  
ensuring that the BCJS Curriculum planning and delivery promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils
  •  
basing topics on areas that are of relevance and interest to the children in the Banstead area as well as linking to current events locally, nationally and internationally.
  •  
ensuring that the BCJS Curriculum meets the specifications of the National Curriculum (Sept 2013)
  •  
providing further opportunities before, during and after the school day for children to develop their skills, knowledge, understanding and appreciation of a range of topics.
  •  
timetabling and focusing on core subjects that are vital for future success (English, Mathematics, Science and Computing) but giving fair weight to non-core subjects (History, Geography, Life Skills, RE, Collective Worship, Music, Art, Design Technology, Spanish and PE)
  •  

grouping the children in the most appropriate ways to help them achieve full success (in classes, small groups, interest or ability groups, 1:1 etc.)

 

Although we are very proud of the well rounded curriculum that we provide at BCJS (see attachments below for further details), some specific highlights include:  
  •  
year group trips such as the outdoor activity camp Marchants Hill for Year 6, Hampton Court Palace for Year 5, Brooklands Museum for Year 4 and Brighton for Year 3
  •  
special whole school days and half days celebrating specific subjects such as:- maths mornings, Spanish afternoons and Sports Week. 
  •  
a huge range of extra-curricular opportunities, especially for sport, music and art 
  •  
specific workshops for topics including African drum workshops in Music, Maths Methods plays and drama workshops on Egyptians, Tudors, Romans and Ancient Greeks.
  •  
charitable events for organisations such as Children in Need and emergency disaster relief organisations
  •  
the children working together with many local organisations such as Rotary Club, Greenacre Nursing Home, Banstead Scouts, Banstead Library, Waitrose supermarket, Flitton’s Nursery and the Banstead May Fayre.
