Our Curriculum

Our SJB Curriculum

(For further information please contact Curriculum Leader: Mr M Connell, email: admin@sjbarrow.cumbria.sch.uk)


At Sir John Barrow School, we offer a curriculum that is both knowledge rich and skills driven. We aim for our children to experience a holistic, outward-looking, relevant and inspiring curriculum.

Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and gives our children wide experiences of a range of texts. Vocabulary is a golden thread that runs through all of our curriculum subjects. 

Our curriculum is underpinned by the principles of spaced retrieval practice to support the deep and embedded learning of knowledge, skills and vocabulary.
