Our Curriculum

 

Our Curriculum Vision 

At Court de Wyck Church School our curriculum is child-centred', aspirational and purposeful in order to instil within our pupils the knowledge, skills and confidence need for their ever-changing futures. 

Its focus is on nurturing pupils’ natural curiosity and love of active learning, supporting them to develop resilience and understanding of the world around them.  It encourages pupils to make connections and to be creative, independent thinkers who relate their learning to real- life experiences. 

At the heart of our curriculum are our values and ‘crew’- working together and achieving more than we thought possible. 

 

 

Our Curriculum Intent 

 

We provide a broad, balanced curriculum that: 

  • engages pupils through exciting, creative, thematic topics tailored to meet the needs of the school and its context 

  • is ambitious for all pupils and provides clear progression of skills, knowledge and understanding  from EYFS to year 6 and beyond 

  • builds on key literacy and numeracy basic skills 

  • utilises features of our local and wider communities, including a wide range of extra-curricular activities 

  • teaches pupils about their developing world, including how their environment and society have changed over time 

  • is adapted to suit the needs of all learners and is adapted and developed for pupils with additional learning needs or disabilities 

  • provides opportunities for pupils to understand our Christian Values 

  • prepares our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in modern Britain. 

  • helps pupils to develop their sense of identity and belonging so they  can make a positive contribution to society actively promoting  the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs 

  • enables pupils to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own, to combat prejudice 

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils 

  • prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experience of later life. 

 

We intend to enable pupils to: 

  • be part of ‘crew’- working together to become confident and independent learners who support each other 

  • grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they develop  their true potential. 

  • articulate their hopes and aspirations for the future 

  • have a sense of belonging to a community both local and wider reaching 

  • appreciate that they are global citizens and to be positive citizens in society, well prepared for life in modern Britain 

  • be confident, ambitious learners 

  • demonstrate behaviour that reflects our core Christian values 

  • question, investigate and experiment, to be adventurous and to develop their own thinking 

  • learn and develop their skills to the best of their ability without limits 

  • know how to learn best for the context they are in 

  •  appreciate human achievement and aspirations 

  • self-reflect on their learning, to respond positively to feedback and to understand next steps to success. 

  • achieve at least age-related expectations across the curriculum unless a pupil’s learning needs means that this is not possible 

  • make good progress across the curriculum from their prior attainment 

  • have equality of opportunity, to diminish social disadvantage
