The School Day and Curriculum

At Crosscanonby St John's CE Primary school we are very proud of the broad and varied curriculum that we offer. Children LOVE coming to school and are always excited about the different things that we learn. The teachers deliver the curriculum in exciting and engaging ways and we use fabulous specialist teachers in areas such as sport, modern foreign languages and art. We often have 'curriculum days' when the whole school focuses on an activity linked to a particular topic to allow children to fully explore an exciting project. Look out for news on the 2018/19 curriculum days.
