At Silverdale St John’s we believe in independent learning. We actively encourage our children to be as independent as possible in all that they do in school, taking the responsibility to challenge and evaluate their own knowledge and understanding of the world.   We are dedicated to teaching a high standard of basic literacy and numeracy skills that will be the foundation for additional skills to be built upon.  We foster an ethos of resilience and resourcefulness supporting children to be unafraid to try something new or make a mistake.  We maintain that learning should be fun. We have a curriculum that is underpinned by relevant, practical, creative experiences that enable every style of learner to be wholly involved.


Underpinning our curriculum are three main objectives.  These are to:

    • Provide an enjoyable and stimulating learning environment that challenges children to develop knowledge and skills and strive to be the best they can be.
    • Ensure that every child feels safe, happy and part of the Christian family by developing a strong, supportive partnership with parents and the community.
    • Encourage children to see themselves as a child of God and nurture their moral and spiritual development.

If you would like to know more about the curriculum, please read the termly class news letters and/or talk to your child’s class teacher.
