Our Curriculum is built around high-quality texts and first-hand experiences that inspire awe, wonder, and curiosity; to challenge children's thinking to develop the thinkers and doers of the future. It prepares our children for an ever-changing world, giving them the necessary skills to contribute fully and enthusiastically to society and lead happy healthy lives.
At North Wheatley C of E Primary School, the curriculum is underpinned by our Christian values of Community, Courage, Wisdom, Hope, Faith and Respect.
Each term, our learning begins by exploring the bible scripture that is linked to each of our core values and school context. This scripture is the starting point for each term's concept.
In 2018/19 we reviewed the school’s curriculum to ensure that it inspired pupils to want to learn, encouraged pupils to think deeply and to make connections across their learning and also be underpinned by our Christian Values. A concept curriculum based around each of the school's Christian Values. Knowledge organisers help pupils to acquire and memorise key knowledge linked to each concept.
The school’s focus for further improvement is now to ensure that knowledge is built sequentially in all the Primary Foundation subjects enabling pupils to make secure connections across different subject areas and ensuring that knowledge is firmly embedded. Our knowledgeable and experienced subject leaders have worked collaboratively to develop 'Curriculum Connections' books that support pupils learning Journey in the Foundation subjects.
