Curriculum Intent

Our ambitious curriculum enables all pupils to develop their essential knowledge, skills and understanding to ensure they are ready for the next stage of their learning journey.

At the core of our curriculum are our school values: kindness, honesty and respect which are lived through everything we do. We have designed our curriculum to reflect what we believe, are the key characteristics of an effective learner: curiosity, ambition, reflection, resilience, resourcefulness and collaboration. These threads weave through all of our teaching and learning. Children’s health, well-being and personal development are also key to developing the whole child and are reflected in our day-to-day provision for all of our children.

The curriculum is designed to be broad and balanced using the National Curriculum as its foundation. It is further enhanced by our wider curriculum which provides rich, varied and stimulating opportunities to further embed our learning. The curriculum is sequenced carefully to ensure each stage of learning builds on from one another. Key knowledge is identified for every phase and builds cumulatively throughout the school. Children have regular opportunities to revisit and reflect on what has gone before.

Our curriculum is enriched by our ambitious use of technology which helps prepare our children for life and work in an increasingly digital future. Our curriculum at Western enables our pupils to leave Primary School with a life-long ability to learn and appreciation of learning.
