Curriculum Aims

Stocksbridge Junior School seeks to enable pupils of all abilities, irrespective of gender, social or cultural background or ethnic origin to realise their full potential through:

1.    The development of lively enquiring minds, the ability to question and discuss rationally, the capacity for creativity and enterprise, a facility in physical skills, and the discipline and self-confidence necessary to apply these qualities effectively. 
2.    The acquisition from experience of a range of curriculum disciplines, the understanding, knowledge and skills relevant to adult life and employment in a fast changing world. 
3.    The effective use of language and maths. 
4.    The development of a personal morality. 
5.    The development of respect for others, an empathy with those from other races, religions and ways of life, and the ability to live harmoniously together. 
6.    An understanding of their world and the inter-dependence of individual groups and nations. 
7.    An appreciation of human achievement and aspirations through practice of the sciences, arts and technologies. 
8.    The pursuit of excellence in all they do, so that they experience enjoyment in their achievements. 

Teaching Hours per Week

A normal school week (excluding acts of worship, registration and breaks, including lunch-break) comprises of twenty-three and a half hours of actual contact teaching time. 

Supporting the Curriculum

Parents often ask how they can help their child at home.  To keep you up to date with your child's learning each term, we send home the ‘Curriculum News’ for each year group, which details the objectives that will be covered throughout each block of work.

Other ways of helping your child include:
  • Ensure that attendance at school is regular. 
  • Be aware of what he/she is learning. 
  • Take an interest in your son/daughter’s work and results. 
  • Stress the benefit of doing well at school. 
  • Try to give a feeling of ‘can do’ confidence. 
  • Help him/her to hold lengthy conversations to reflect on experience. 
  • Let your child see, if possible, you reading and writing. 
  • Try to have books around. 
  • … but most of all, talk to your child about school life!
