The school curriculum comprises all learning and other experiences that we plan for our pupils. The central aims of our curriculum are to work in collaboration with families and the local community to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and to achieve; to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. The curriculum of the school is organised so that children are stimulated, encouraged and challenged to develop their individual potential and personality to the full.
At Widewell our curriculum comprises all the learning and other experiences that we plan to meet the needs and interest of our pupils. It is constantly evolving to develop the skills needed for children to become successful learners, help prepare them for life in modern Britain and empower them to achieve success in the future. Our aim, to deliver a dynamic and innovative curriculum that challenges, excites and inspires children to become successful and confident learners and achieve their best, is the main driving force behind how we design and deliver our curriculum.
The school’s curriculum promotes and sustains a thirst for knowledge and understanding, and a love of learning. It covers a wide range of subjects and provides opportunities for academic, technical, creative and sporting excellence. It has a very positive impact on all pupils’ behaviour and safety, and contributes very well to pupils’ academic achievement, their physical well-being, their understanding of British and world values and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Our curriculum is planned in themes, with topics chosen to capture the interests and imaginations of our children.
