St Jude's Church of England Primary School

Foundation Subjects

Our curriculum isn't just about Reading, Writing, and Maths. We realise that a full education is one that provides children with a well rounded learning experience. Foundation subjects such as history, geography, R.E, Citizenship and PHSE offer occasions for children to consider their responsibilities on issues surrounding the environment, local and global communities.  They also provide opportunities for children to use their creative and critical thinking in ways that challenge them to question the world around them.

Our intention is to celebrate the rich heritage of our locality and beyond. We aim to celebrate London's incredible history, people and places; putting into context events that have shaped our lives today. We intend to foster inquisitive learners, who are not content to relegate history to a series of stories, but who will enquire into, search for and critically examine, evidence from the past.

Geography Intent, Implementation and Impact

In this ever-changing, interconnected world, we want our children to leave us with a curiosity and fascination for the planet we call home.

Through termly DT projects, we want children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts and to consider their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

PSHE and RSE Intent, Implementation and Impact 

PSHE and RSE Progression of Skills 

Our intention is that our children will become healthy, independent and responsible members of our ever changing society. We know that where PSHE is delivered well, children's life chances and academic successes are vastly improved. Therefore, we aim to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and advocate for those that live in our diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
