Curriculum Intent Overview:
At Woodhouse Community Primary School, we aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum for all.
The 6 core values we wish our curriculum to promote and develop are: RESPECT, CONFIDENCE, RESILIENCE, DETERMINATION, COMMUNICATION and AMBITION.
We promote respect through our curriculum by providing opportunities for our children to discuss and ask/answer questions, debate issues, listen carefully and work collectively as a team, allowing them to become reasoned and thoughtful learners.
We promote confidence through our curriculum through providing opportunities to practise and refine key skills of reading, writing and maths, speaking and listening as well as increasing knowledge. Children are encouraged to develop independence in their learning and challenge is evident for all. Reading to learn and enhance knowledge is an integral part of the curriculum at Key Stage 2.
We promote resilience through our curriculum by ensuring children have access to a range of problem-solving, open-ended, investigative, practical activities where possible. We ensure plenty of opportunity for children to work together in groups/teams, with challenge for all.
We promote determination through our curriculum by having high expectations for all, ensuring that our children’s learning is relevant to their lives and interests, utilising the local area to enhance activities. We provide enrichment activities and focus on developing key life-skills. The learning in the curriculum develops positive learning attitudes, motivating children to do well.
We promote communication through our curriculum by providing plenty of opportunity for speaking and listening and enquiry-based learning. We focus on developing a rich vocabulary for our children, to allow them to express themselves clearly and accurately and strengthen communication through a range of visits and visitors and utilising visual Literacy throughout the curriculum.
We promote ambition through our curriculum by ensuring our children have the knowledge, social and emotional skills and cultural capital they need to allow them to become a successful citizen of Modern Britain. They are able to show an appreciation and tolerance of other cultures and our diverse society, being outward looking and inclusive of all. The curriculum allows our children to explore future learning and career opportunities, making links to the wider world of work, enhancing their personal aspirations.
