Curriculum

 

Our Curriculum Intent

At Willoughton Primary School, we want our children to be excited about coming to school. We want them to be curious learners, who find education enjoyable and rewarding. Our curriculum is designed with the intent that our children leave us with the building blocks in place to become successful adults: to be able to gain employment, to live healthy lifestyles, to be moral citizens and to take opportunities to extend their horizons.

In recognition of the context of the starting point of many of our children, we have a strong focus on the teaching and learning of English and Mathematics; we explicitly teach vocabulary, communication and reasoning skills. Our teaching and learning pays due attention to the National Curriculum but we work consistently to ensure our curriculum is relevant to the needs of our children and the community that they live in. We give our children a voice and encourage them to value their community beyond the school gates.

Our ambition is to send our children on to the next stage of their educational journey as confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners with a strong sense of moral purpose and respect for others.
