WARREN PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL CURRICULUM STATEMENT
For more detailed individual Year Group information please explore our ‘Parents Page’ and ‘Outside Classroom’ tabs.
At Warren Park Primary School, our vision is to create an environment that encourages its children to Listen, Think, Learn and Enjoy. Our curriculum is designed to provide a broad and balanced education that challenges and meets the needs of all children. It provides opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society.
Our intention is:
- To support all children to reach a high standard of literacy and numeracy skills through specific teaching and application across the curriculum.
- To provide a challenging and engaging curriculum which is planned to enable children to build on previous learning and secure strong foundations for future learning.
- To extend learning beyond the classroom through the effective use of resources including the school grounds, our outdoor classroom, the local area and through planned use of visits and visitors.
- To provide a curriculum underpinned by the six strands: boundaries, resilience, focus, respect, self-regulation and independence.
- To promote the diversity of life and celebrate difference creating a culture of respect for all.
- To sustain personal and social development whilst ensuring children’s well-being is at the heart of all we do.
Our three teacher model enables us to achieve this through excellent teaching which supports, guides and inspires our children while encouraging a love for learning. The curriculum enables the children to develop core skills, share ideas, express their opinions and apply knowledge and skills learned in a wide range of meaningful contexts.
- Teachers will have good knowledge of the subjects they teach and will be encouraged to refine their knowledge and skills through attending training, sharing best practice and undertaking relevant research. Subject leaders will provide colleagues with effective support for planning, resourcing and teaching.
- Lessons will provide frequent opportunities for discussion to extend and deepen thinking, check understanding, identify misconceptions and provide clear and direct feedback.
- Teachers use assessment effectively to check understanding and inform next steps so that knowledge is gained, applied and consolidated. Pupil progress meetings are held termly, linked to agreed data drop points, to discuss the progress of every child and to put in additional interventions as required.
- Where possible, learning will be supported and enriched by field study, visits, workshops, artefact boxes, role-play and practical resources.
- Progression of knowledge, skills and understanding is carefully planned, reviewed and adapted yearly to ensure that children’s learning builds effectively over time.
- Our teaching practice will be rooted in evidence- based research. Teachers will be self-reflective and will enhance their teaching skills and strategies to help raise standards across the full breadth of the curriculum.
From very different starting points, all children will make good progress academically, emotionally, creatively, socially and physically. Knowledge, understanding and skills will be secured and embedded so that children achieve highly and are fully prepared for 21st century life after their time at Warren Park.
- Children achieve well by developing knowledge and skills as they progress through the school. This is reflected in the results that are achieved at the end of Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
- They will have strong communication skills, both written and verbal, and will listen respectfully and with tolerance to the views of others.
- They will take pride in all that they do; always striving to do their best.
- They will demonstrate emotional resilience and the ability to persevere when they encounter challenge.
- They will develop a sense of self-awareness and become confident in their own abilities.
- They will be kind, respectful and honest, demonstrate inclusive attitudes and have a sense of their role in our wider society.
