Our Curriculum

At IBJS we intend for our curriculum to promote a love of learning through a rich, engaging and ambitious curriculum; which is personalised to the needs and interests of our learners. Almost half of our school community are disadvanatged and therefore it is vital that our curriculum powerfully addresses social disadvantage. We plan to ensure children learn as much as possible through real life or imaginary hooks and experiences these include; Fort Nelson World War 2 experience, Space Planaterium, Winter and Summer Safety days, Whole school Present buying day, trips to the local Baptist church, Weald and Downland Museum, Marwell Zoo, Dress up days, Mexian Restaurant, Shakesphere at the theatre, Year 5 camp, Year 6 residential, local field trips, Open box theatre group (Romans and Early Man), Butser farm, Chichester Harbour, Porchester castle, local river walk, Portsmouth Dockyard.Your preferences have prevented this content from being loaded.

Our Curriculum design is supported by Cornerstones Curriculum. Their 4 stage pedagogical approach is:Engage (hook pupils in, engage and excite) Develop (teach facts and skills and deepen understanding) Innovate (provide scenerios that support pupils’ creative, imaginative and independent thinking, applying what they already know) Express (reflect and celebrate). Cornerstones Curriulum is designed so that subjects are interwoven (when natural links occur) and that knowledge and skills are progressive. Here is our long term topic overview: Primary Curriculum- long term plan
