Our Curriculum Impact
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 needed for their ever-changing futures.
Its focus is on nurturing pupils’ natural curiosity and a life-long love of 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 Christian values and the dedication to working collaboratively to achieve more than we ever thought possible.
Our Curriculum Intent
As a church school at the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust, our curriculum follows the principles of the Trust, embraces our own local context and is very much led by our Christian vision and values.
We want pupils to engage through exciting, creative, thematic topics tailored to meet the needs of the school and the local area of Claverham and Bristol.
Our curriculum is built on ambitious and memorable learning experiences which provide a clear progression of skills, knowledge and understanding from EYFS to Year 6.
The learning themes taught will include cross-curricular opportunities to ensure consolidation of previous learning in English, Maths and Foundation subjects. Teaching will encourage them to question, investigate and experiment, to be adventurous and to develop their own thinking.
Court de Wyck Church School is located on the outskirts of Bristol, which provides 'rich' learning opportunities and enables us to draw on our local culture and heritage, such as Claverham Quakers, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and local Victorian seaside towns.
Our curriculum enables pupils to experience and connect to national and global communities and develop strong links with outside charities and foundations.
It prepares children well for secondary school and beyond in an ever changing world. It is adapted, designed and developed for pupils with learning needs or disabilities through quality first teaching, support from the SENDCo, regular meetings with parents and support from external agencies.
Children are instilled with a strong understanding of Christian values, which underpin our ambitious curriculum. It allows children to reflect and build on their own sense of character as well as experience life in all its fullness.
It 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.
Children are taught to develop respect for and sensitivity to others, in particular those whose faiths and beliefs are different from their own, to combat prejudice. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils.
We have a strong emphasis on working together to become confident and independent learners who support each other to grow into positive, responsible people. Children will work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so they can achieve more than they ever thought possible.
