The curriculum at St Wilfrids centres around our three drivers community, connections and Christianity.
With these key drivers in mind, we aim to make our learning appealing, sparking the interest, enthusiasm and curiosity in all our children. This ethos runs through everything we do from day to day lessons, our learning environment, visits and visitors and extra-curricular activities. We want our curriculum to be meaningful for children giving them a real sense of purpose when they learn. Children learn where they feel safe and are listened to, where they are valued and loved, where they are stimulated and challenged and where learning is memorable.
We aim for our curriculum to be skills based and knowledge rich which is embeded this through a range of topic based units of learning. We understand and are committed to the development of the ‘whole child’ and acknowledge such maths and English skills are essential but are only part of the the overall child. We place particular emphasis on music and performance. We want children to leave St Wilfrids with a thirst for learning, be independent thinkers with a strong moral compass in order to build self-worth and confidence, with a care for the world and care for each other.
We want our school values to be lived and breathed by both pupils and staff. Our core values are:
Curriculum sequencing is vital. There needs to be a clear, logical and strategic sequence of knowledge and skills from our youngest right up to our oldest children. Please explore each curriculum page to see our progression documents.
