The children are central to our Curriculum. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to develop their self-esteem and self-confidence. We have high expectations for our pupils and encourage them to have high aspirations. We want them to be inquisitive and passionate about their learning and develop the skills for life-long learning. We want our children to be responsible and effective by the time they finish their journey at Wolsey House Primary school and move onto the next phase of their lives. We aim to deliver a stimulating, exciting and challenging curriculum.
Foundation Stage pupils follow the EYFS curriculum. In Reception the pupils have daily phonics/Maths/Literacy sessions.
Pupils in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 have daily English (Literacy) and Maths (Numeracy) lessons. They follow a broad and balanced curriculum which includes the Foundation subjects, Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Skills (PSHE). In August 2014 it became a statutory requirement in England for schools to teach a Modern Foreign Language at Key Stage 2 - French is taught from Years 3 to 6. Opportunities for developing literacy and numeracy skills across the Curriculum are created e.g. writing.
We continuously revise ad review the curriculum that we provide for our children. We continue to develop the provision and our main aim is to provide exciting, stimulating topics which the children become fully absorbed in a range of strategies at times subject specific and discretely taught skills, and at others through a cross-curricular approach. We strive to include as many curriculum subjects into each topic, making them relevant and meaningful for our children. We use a number of different approaches and strategies to explore and deliver the topics to ensure we enable our children to develop all the skills they need to be confident and successful learners. All our children are involved in the planning stage as we value their ideas and contributions, we believe that children learn best when they are able to steer and direct their own learning. We want our children to be inquisitive and passionate about their learning and spark a desire for lifelong learning.
We follow Curriculum 2014 (please click the link below).
