The Walliscote Curriculum

'Aim High, Work Hard, Be Kind' 

At Walliscote Primary School we believe that every child should have the opportunity to be extraordinary and future ready through a curriculum which is knowledge rich, bold and courageous. 

Our unique context is at the forefront of our minds to ensure that our curriculum is adapted to meet the needs of all our children. We have taken into consideration the varied backgrounds, needs and experiences of our diverse community using the curriculum as a tool to counter inequality and disadvantage in order to expand life chances, and increase social and cultural equity and mobility. 

We are committed to delivering a broad and balanced curriculum with a rich diet of learning experiences and opportunities to enhance our children’s learning and developmental needs. 

Our topics have been designed to ensure progression across the key stages alongside careful sequencing to build successive knowledge and skills for future learning. We recognise the importance of teaching concepts to support children’s development of understanding when making connections with new knowledge. Effective ongoing assessments ensure children embed key concepts in their long-term memory and support children to apply them fluently.  

When children leave Walliscote Primary school at the end of Key stage 2, our aim is for all children to have the requisite knowledge and skills to be resilient, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of their education and beyond. 

We believe it is important that the curriculum considers the development of the whole child and not entirely on academic success. 

At Walliscote we have mixed year group classes, for some areas of our curriculum we have a 2-year rolling programme which allows our children full coverage of the curriculum in their time at Walliscote Primary School. We call these cycle A and B.
