At St John with St Mark, we have been implementing the new National Curriculum from September 2014. As well as following the Department for Education guidelines, we are also designing a curriculum fit for the learning of our unique school community.

 Details of the programmes of study are sent out to parents in our termly curriculum booklets.

Phonics in EYFS and Key Stage One

We are using the letters and sounds  phonics scheme through the EYFS and Key Stage One. 


We have a rigorous home reading system using a combination of different reading schemes to ensure breadth of reading experience.   We currently use Big Cats, Rigby Star and Lighthouse reading schemes.  Children's books are changed frequently and awards are given out for regular readers.
