TDJS follows the National Curriculum and ensures that this is taught to the highest standards.
"Pupils’ achievement is good. Many pupils enter the school with above average attainment. By the time they leave, their attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is consistently well above national averages." Ofsted March 2014
The school also encourages different activities and themes to tie in with the curriculum which provides stimulus and interest to different subject areas.
We very much feel that the children engage fully with all aspects of the curriculum because it is interesting, varied and challenging. They love their learning and as a result develop a broad repertoire of skills which are transferable to different experiences. This equips them well for future learning.
All aspects of our curriculum are accessible to all children, irrespective of their ethnic background, gender, disability, religious or linguistic background. We strive hard to meet the needs of those pupils with special educational needs, those with disabilities, those who are more able, those with special gifts and talents and the children who are learning English as an additional language. We provide a rich, challenging curriculum, which stretches all of our children. Staff are aware of children who have exceptional talents and fits and monitor or track their progress carefully to ensure their academic potential or talent is continually developed.
