Curriculum Overview

Widden Primary School 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 the qualities of honesty, good decision-making and a lifelong love of learning, developing the skills necessary for next phase in their lives.
