At Wells Hall Primary School, we intend to have a highly motivating and stimulating curriculum which encourages children to ask questions, be independent learners, collaborate and be aspirational. The curriculum is a way in which we make the learning meaningful for the children. It links topics from a variety of subjects to fit in with an overall topic or theme that children will learn about for a half term. It allows for problem-solving across all subjects and real-world application to the learning process, making it a more comprehensive way of educating and of learning.
We have ensured that all skills from the new National Curriculum are covered throughout the year - one topic might allow for more art/DT and PSHE to be taught (e.g. Belonging) while another might cover more history and geography skills (e.g. Around the World).
The curriculum is the driver in which we are able to implement the school's values, as outlined in the ethos statement; the values of respecting others, their own local environment and the wider world. The impact of our curriculum will be seen in not only in measurable attainment and progress but that Wells Hall Primary School creates polite, well-mannered caring members of our school community who understand and respect everybody’s differences and needs.
