Our curriculum

Curriculum Statement

At North Wheatley C of E Primary School the curriculum, underpinned by our Christian ethos, prepares our children for an ever changing world, giving them the necessary skills to contribute fully and enthusiastically to society and lead happy, healthy lives. Values such as responsibility, respect, love and forgiveness are embedded in all that we do. British values are taught to develop pupils understanding of the need for freedom, tolerance, respect for the rule of law, belief in personal and social responsibility and respect for British institutions. These British values are evident in the organisation of the school council, through the school culture, through the ethos and high standards in school, through staff role models, through worship and RE and through curricular work. We fly our very traditional flag high and celebrate the fact it was designed by pupils!

Our curriculum provides children with the opportunity to:
•Learn to value others, their views, cultures and beliefs
•Celebrate the uniqueness of everyone, treating everyone with care and respect
•Develop a range of skills to support life-long learning
•Communicate and interact effectively with others
•Listen and empathise
•Make a positive contribution to the school, local and wider community
•Enjoy the challenge of learning in a variety of ways, making full use of the indoor and outdoor environment and the wider locality
•Become reflective learners who have a sense of responsibility for their own learning and development
•Learn independently, with and from others
•Become active learners who are resilient and adaptable
•Know the importance of achieving your best with the motto ‘Be the best me that I can be…’

We deliver the 2014 New Primary Curriculum, and base our learning on the Cornerstones creative curriculum. Our pupils are highly engaged and in our annual questionnaire they say that they enjoy their learning because it is meaningful and fun!
