At Woolaston Primary our curriculum has been developed to take into account the knowledge and skills that pupils need in order to take advantage of opportunities, responsibilities and experiences as they grow older. The school’s curriculum has been planned and sequenced so that there is clear progression in the knowledge and skills taught across the school, this ensures that we build on what has been taught before and identifies what we need to teach the children next. These sequences of lessons not only develop skills and knowledge but also support our pupils to achieve clearly defined end points in their learning. This end point could be the skills and knowledge they need to have acquired at the end of a unit of teaching, the end of a term or academic year or the end of a key stage. At the end of EYFS, Year 2 and Year 6 pupils will have covered the skills and knowledge contained in their current curriculum and will be well prepared for the next stage in their learning. At Woolaston Primary we have high expectations of all our learners and we provide our pupils with the challenge and support they need in order to achieve their potential, all pupils access the full curriculum regardless of any special educational needs or disabilities.
Teachers will deliver the curriculum through carefully planned lessons that provide pupils with the opportunities to practise and consolidate key skills and concepts so that they can apply them fluently. During all lessons teachers will observe the pupils as they work in order to address any misconceptions and to provide feedback which supports pupils to address any areas for development. This assessment of pupils’ work informs teacher’s planning by identifying the next steps in their learning, this helps pupils to embed knowledge and enable pupils to make clear links between their previous learning and the new learning.
