At Westacre Infant school, our intent is to provide a curriculum that is personalised and meets the needs of all our learners. Our curriculum intent is to help the children grow into independent thinkers, who can support each other and persevere when they are learning new knowledge and skills. Westacre Infant School is committed to meeting the requirements of the Primary National Curriculum. We celebrate and welcome differences and ensure that every child is recognised as a unique individual so that we can cater their learning around their starting points as they progress through each phase of learning.
At Westacre Infant School, leaders and staff implement a curriculum that has clear expectations that results in positive outcomes for all pupils.
We are proud to offer all our children a broad and balanced curriculum. The curriculum is engaging, exciting and innovative and this ensures that all of our children develop the knowledge and skills they need to grow and learn together from different starting points.
Our curriculum has been designed to encompass knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live. The topics have been designed to complement and build on one another with clear progression and links so that they are able to acquire a deeper understanding of concepts and apply their knowledge in different contexts.
Throughout the curriculum we celebrate diversity through, assemblies, visits and celebration days. All learning is successful with the thread of our school values of, Friendship, Honesty, Kindness, Teamwork, Perseverance and Respect.
At the end of each topic we offer our families the opportunity to showcase their learning through our planned topic exhibitions. Our School Values, along with British Values, are at the heart of our curriculum. Our ultimate aim for all of our pupils is for them to be independent, motivated and successful learners in readiness for the next stage of their education.
As a result of our curriculum offer, our pupils know more and are able to do more. The impact of the intended and implemented curriculum is evidenced in the progress our children make across the curriculum. Our children leave the school with a strong sense of belonging to its community, where they have the confidence and skills to continue reaching their full potential and make a real difference in the world.
Westacre Warm Ups
The documents below are being made to help you support you and your children with the learning they will be doing throughout the year. You are not expected to do the related activities in one session because we want you to spend quality time learning and consolidating with your children at a convenient and suitable time for your family.
We believe that with a weekly reading book, a Topic Based Homework Project and with the documents below, you will be able to enjoy supporting your children and helping them before they learn new things. The activities identified can also be used to consolidate and check on the learning your children are achieving at school overtime.
The Education City activities will be specific to the learning that will happen in the classroom and we hope that with your support your children will be more confident within the classroom because of the learning they may have done beforehand. The children enjoy the interactive activities in the classroom and we hope that overtime this will support the children to make as much progress as possible.
Thank you for your continued support,
