Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact
We have designed a skills and knowledge based curriculum which recognises all children as individuals and supports them to recognise they have a role to play as members of the local, national and global community:
- We will promote children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning
- We will provide well planned, creative and experiential learning opportunities, building on prior knowledge and skills, that will be matched to the individual strengths and needs of the children
- We will provide opportunities through an exciting and engaging curriculum, including a wide range of workshops and trips and the Skills Builder programme, to develop skills for life
- We will create a happy, friendly, stimulating working atmosphere
- We will encourage self-confidence, resilience and the ability to make decisions
- We will celebrate all types of achievements so that everybody experiences the fulfilment of personal and shared success
- We will ensure that everyone has access to equal opportunities. We will expect sensitivity and acceptance of others, and good manners
- We will ensure that ‘Rights’ education is embedded within the curriculum and that all children know and can use the language of rights.
- We will continue to promote our status as a ‘Rights Respecting’ school, developing pupils’ tolerance and understanding of others and equipping them for life in a diverse and rapidly changing society
- We will ensure that curriculum across the school, including Personal, Social and Health Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Religious Education, teach children about those different to themselves; to promote tolerance and help children understand the importance of education in combating prejudice
At Wormholt Park Primary School, we ensure that the curriculum is skills based.
Our skills-based learning provides classroom environments where independence, thinking skills, collaboration and active learning are developed at the same time as knowledge is acquired.
This curriculum aims to deepen children's learning at all levels across a broad and balanced range of learning opportunities. We place great importance on trips and workshops to ensure learning comes to life.
Whilst the teaching and learning of Maths and English is a crucial part of everyday learning, the social, physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth of every child, is also a key part of our skills based curriculum which focuses on transferable skills within learning.
Our Skills Builder projects fully support this approach, with vital skills taught, developed and practised across our broad and balanced curriculum. Please click the link below to find about about the vital skills developed through our Skills Builder projects.
Through our curriculum, children will move to their next stage of education, equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. These skills with be both academic, as well as life skills.
This is reflected in results from national tests, as well as by observing how our children become confident, resilient, independent young people, who are able to persevere and problem solve. These skills are vital, alongside the ability to read, write and be mathematicians.
