Our Curriculum Vision
At Widden Primary School we are developing a knowledge rich curriculum which is engaging and exciting, that celebrates our unique and diverse community. Our school values: integrity, diversity and sense of community are imbedded within our school curriculum allowing our children to develop as a whole child not just academically.
Our curriculum is deep rooted in our belief that every child should be able to access high-quality learning, supporting pupil achievement. Every child is entitled to an education which enables them to achieve a fulfilled future. Our curriculum is based on the progression of key knowledge, skills and concepts outlined in the National Curriculum. We believe in adaptive teaching to meet the needs of all learners. This knowledge is taught sequentially through stimulating and engaging topics which weave knowledge, facts and concepts to captivate and inspire so that our children know more and remember more.
Diversity: The richness of our diversity enables us to delve into a wide range of cultural and historical aspects of life.
Community: Our community is at the heart of what we do, our children develop a strong understanding of the world around them, local and further afield.
Integrity: Through the curriculum the children develop a lifelong love of learning, developing the skills necessary for next phase in their lives.
We develop ambitious and aspirational learners, who fulfil their academic and personal potential and take pride in their achievements. We are completely committed to providing our children with a curriculum that inspires and motivates them.
All pupils will secure firm foundations in English and Mathematics as this underpins a growing excellence in other subjects. Our knowledge-based curriculum offers a broad range of subjects from Early Years through to Key Stage 2, whilst developing their skills across the curriculum. We believe in bringing learning to life, both indoors and out, with an emphasis on engaging, purposeful & challenging learning.
