West Road Primary Academy is committed to meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum for Primary Schools introduced in September 2014. The Government site describing the curriculum can be found here.
We have developed our schemes of work to reflect the content and challenge of this new curriculum. Teachers have received training in the key areas of curriculum change and we are ready to provide a creative, rich curriculum for all our pupils.
The curriculum will be taught taking into account the needs of all children. We aim for our curriculum to be exciting and to inspire children to nurture a passion for learning, encouraging inquisitiveness and confidence in our pupils.
The key drivers which underpin our curriculum are ASPIRATION, CULTURAL CAPITAL and POWERFUL KNOWLEDGE.
- ASPIRATION – to provide our young people to be proud and aim high. We change mirrors into windows.
- CULTURAL CAPITAL – to broaden our children’s outlook on the world. We will provide them with wide, rich and challenging first hand experiences encompassing all aspects of the National Curriculum. We will maximise opportunities to apply and build on subject knowledge and wider skills.
- POWERFUL KNOWLEDGE – our children are introduced to powerful knowledge through subjects. This will prepare them for life – they can shape their own futures.
