At Wolverton Primary School we offer a wide ranging and comprehensive curriculum that is both structured and stimulating. The school places a strong focus on the teaching and attainment of the key skills in English and Mathematics at each stage of a child’s development, believing that these provide the foundation upon which further study in other subject areas is based.
Our curriculum follows the National Curriculum (2014), which consists of eleven subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Design and Technology, Computing and Programming), History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, Physical Education and Modern Foreign Languages (KS2). In addition to these subjects Religious Education is also taught and we follow the Warwickshire Agreed Syllabus for RE (2009). Alongside the academic curriculum, our Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship (P.S.H.E & Citizenship) curriculum prepares children for their lives today and in the future.
Our curriculum, with the exception of the Reception class, is planned and taught in phases rather than separate year groups as follows:
Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2)
Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4)
Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6)
We use a topic based or thematic approach to planning our curriculum. Topics have been selected to ensure continuity, progression and full coverage of National Curriculum Programmes of Study. Some subjects, including maths and English are taught discretely.
Our curriculum is underpinned by our ‘looking for learning’ approach which engages pupils in their own learning, encourages them to recognise the strategies they use to become successful learners and promotes high standards.
At Wolverton Primary School, we endeavour to deliver a 21st century curriculum which promotes and sustains a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning.
