‘An inspirational school for aspirational learning.’
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 curriculum aims to provide children with an education that is broad and balanced building on the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children, whatever their starting points, as they progress through each Key Stage.
Our unique context is at the forefront of our minds to ensure that our curriculum is adapted to be accessible for all children.
We deliver our curriculum through a topic based approach which follows a 2 year cycle. The topics have been coherently planned and sequenced to ensure all children secure their understanding and develop the skills and concepts of the National Curriculum 2014. We aim to offer wider experiences and opportunities to support the learning and developmental needs of all the children in our school.
Where appropriate, core subjects are woven throughout. We recognise the importance of children making connections when learning and how this builds on knowledge over time. Ongoing assessment helps to ensure coverage and progression throughout the school.
When children leave Walliscote Primary school at the end of Keystage 2, our aim is for all children to have the requisite skills to be resilient, independent and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of their education.
It is important that the curriculum considers the development of the whole child and not entirely on academic success.
