Our rich, broad and balanced curriculum is designed to enable the school to be successful in achieveing its mission statement, vision and aims.
Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and we teach Religious Education based on the locally agreed syllabus.
Parents may chose to withdraw their child from RE lessons and the non-statutory parts of the Sex and Relationships curriculum. We would always ask that this is done after consultation with the Headteacher.

The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated in 2014.
The DfE have recently reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
British Values are Fitzjohn’s Values.
Democracy – We all have a voice and we are all listened to: We have a School Council and we all get to vote so we can make important decisions about our school
The Rule of Law – We follow our Golden Rules to make sure everyone is safe, happy and achieving well at school
Individual Liberty – We all have the right to choose: We help each other to make choices that are safe, wise and considerate
Mutual Respect – We show empathy and appreciation for each other.
Tolerance of Those With Different Faiths And Beliefs – We celebrate our diversity.
