A warm welcome to our curriculum page. Here you can find all the important information relating to our curriculum and how it works here at TJLS.
The aim of our curriculum is to open doors of opportunity for our children.
We achieve this through a clear and careful understanding of our intent, implementation and impact.
Our curriculum is structured into different layers to ensure the journey from the National Curriculum Document (2014) to what the children experience in class is carefully designed and mapped out.
At TJLS, our intention is for our curriculum to:
Our curriculum is underpinned by our Dream, Discover, Flourish drivers. We also make use of the 3Es (Embed, Enrich, Enhance), to support children’s learning journey.
We implement our intended curriculum through 8 key strands. The implementation plan has been informed by the work of Barak Rosenshine on Effective Principles of Instruction. You will see his principles threaded throughout our implementation plan.
The school currently has previously used a Year A/B rolling programme – and to ensure sufficient progression of learning, we now need to move to a yearly curriculum that is coherent, sequenced, progressive and well-resourced.
This change will happen mid-year in 2022/23.
This curriculum will be launched in September 2023. It will become the school’s yearly curriculum as we move away from a rolling Year A/B programme.
We have clearly mapped out the progression expected across the curriculum and matched this to the content we teach.
These documents are organised with the National Curriculum Aims in mind – as well as the skills to be learned and the knowledge to be taught.
The frameworks have been planned all the way up to Year 6 in place for our potential expansion under the Schools for the Future initiative. This will ensure that we are clear with how our curriculum now prepares children for their learning later on the primary stage.

PE and PSHE are formatted differently as we makes plans for further developing our curriculum offer in these areas.
