Our curriculum is of vital importance to us at St James Hatcham because we understand that our curriculum sets our children up as learners for life and supports well the changes and expectations laid out by the Department for Education. The updated curriculum reflects our beliefs and is a broad, well-balanced and exciting thematic curriculum that supports outstanding development of literacy and numeracy skills across all subjects. It is flexible, child-centred and current; whilst learning from our history and understanding that opportunities to learn outside of the classroom are as important as those inside. It reflects Christian and British values and builds upon the wide base of cultures shared amongst our ‘St James family’.
