The aim of our Widden Curriculum is to develop provision so that our children gain the best experiences to enhance their learning. We have agreed a list of experiences that every child should have during their time from Reception to Year 6 at Widden and have adjusted learning opportunities so that we can achieve this.
The rationale is to provide cohesive, interesting learning that inspires children to achieve the school vision of ‘Opening doors to exciting learning, the wider world and a fulfilled future.’ All decisions about areas of study are also scrutinised using our FREE values (Friendship, Respect, Excellence & Equality) to underpin all that we do and to take into account the diversity of our community. In assemblies and FREE lessons, the children are encouraged to explore their own values, the school's FREE values, British Values and what these mean in our diverse and vibrant school.
Our exciting curriculum provides a broad and balanced learning experience - covering all the skills contained in the Early Years Foundation Stage (ages 2-5) and the National Curriculum (5-11). These are woven together into topics so that children can really immerse themselves in learning that is purposeful, meaningful and rewarding.
