Curriculum Overview

Our Intent


At Ainsdale St John’s, we believe that every child should be given the opportunity to thrive in a safe, exciting and fun environment where they can grow, develop and achieve in all that they do as they embark on their journey to become life-long learners. We offer a quality of education that aims to open doors to success and excellence in the 21st Century. Our aim is to provide clear goals that children can enthusiastically work towards through the implementation of inspirational and memorable activities across the whole curriculum. We believe that Jesus is a guiding example in the heart of our Christian family and wider school community. It is our responsibility to ensure that all our children become active and responsible learners who have a greater understanding of the world around them and see themselves as global citizens of the future.
