Woodthorpe Primary School

Welcome toWoodthorpe Primary School

Curriculum Overview

 

Our school is a happy, exciting and caring community in which each child thrives and our curriculum intent is to embody this in every aspect of our daily practice. Our curriculum builds towards pupils being able to meet/exceed national expectations, become next stage ready and to demonstrate confidence around our school values of ‘sport’, ‘respect’, ‘skills for life’ and ‘challenge’. The school’s curriculum is planned and sequenced in such a way that new knowledge and skills build upon what has already been taught and children work towards the clearly defined end points. 

 

At Woodthorpe, we strive to ensure that we deliver a curriculum that is founded upon secure foundations in the Early Years, rich in key knowledge and progressive across each year group within school. We use a variety of schemes to both underpin and enhance our curriculum:
