National Curriculum (KS1 and KS2)

At St James' Church of England Primary School, we follow the statutory Primary National Curriculum 2014. 

The National Curriculum provides a framework of core knowledge which must be taught.

We are committed to providing innovative and inspirational teaching with high quality learning experiences for all pupils. We want pupils to have a thirst for learning that continues beyond their time at St James’.
