Curriculum Intent - What do we hope to achieve?

At Warley Town School we will ensure that all pupils secure essential skills and knowledge which enable them to access a broad and engaging curriculum. Our curriculum will be accessible, purposeful, enjoyable and memorable.

We will always endeavor to remove barriers to learning so that all pupils, including disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils, can thrive and develop as motivated, independent, resilient learners.

Our curriculum will be planned to ensure progression between year groups and key stages, instilling a love of learning and readiness for their next stage of education.

Children in Reception Class follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS).

Children in Years 1 - 6 follow the National Curriculum. 

 

Curriculum Implementation – How will we deliver the curriculum?

Pupils will access a broad and engaging curriculum. Often, although not  exclusively, subjects will be taught through topics. This enables pupils to access a wide range of cross curricular knowledge and skills in a way that engages them  and helps their learning to ‘stick’.
