At Stoke Park Junior School we provide all children with a curriculum which is broad, well balanced and above all stimulates the children to learn. We promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and seek to prepare them for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
We strive to develop meaningful links between curriculum subjects, in order to embed key skills, knowledge and concepts. Within a positive and caring environment, we provide an holistic curriculum which develops the whole child and the opportunity for every child to reach their full potential and be the very best version of themselves.
The curriculum taught at our school includes all the statutory National Curriculum requirements and many additional areas. These requirements have been written into our school’s detailed schemes and policies of work for each curriculum area.

Stoke Park Junior School Curriculum Overview
The compulsory subjects under the National Curriculum are as follows:
English, Mathematics, Science, Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, Languages, Geography, History, Music and Physical Education. The teaching of Religious Education is statutory in all schools and here at Stoke Park, we follow the Hampshire Agreed Syllabus. English and Maths teaching are a fundamental part of each day here at Stoke Park and teachers seek to make as many cross curricular links as possible, so that skills taught in these subjects can be applied in a range of contexts.
Our main aims when delivering the curriculum are to:
- Plan and teach to the requirements of the National Curriculum offering children stimulating and challenging experiences, preparing them positively for life in modern Britain and promoting the Fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance, for those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
- Use the National Curriculum framework as an outline of core knowledge, on which to develop exciting and stimulating lessons, promoting the development of children’s knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
- Inspire children to want to learn, investigate and explore each curriculum area.
- Enable children to develop a respect and tolerance for a diversity of people, religions, social and moral values.
- Equip each child with the necessary skills to become a fluent reader and promote a love of books and reading.
- Teach mathematical skills, knowledge, concepts and develop children’s ability and understanding to apply these effectively across the curriculum.
- Encourage good handwriting, accurate spelling, speaking and listening skills and the correct use of grammar
- Enable children to acquire scientific and technological skills, knowledge and awareness, so they are well equipped to thrive in an ever-changing technological world.
