Since September 2014, all schools have been implementing the new National Curriculum. At Wessington Primary School all our work is in line with the curriculum and is organised into exciting and aspiring topics on a 2-year rolling programme.
We believe that the curriculum is a powerful tool that promotes a love of learning and willingness to explore as many opportunities and experiences as possible. We use the National Curriculum as the starting point for a wide and varied learning experience for our children. We enrich this by our strong ethos based on respect for ourselves and others, equality and a sense of wonder at the world we live in. We are committed to developing the whole child. Our children have the opportunity to be creative, physically active and academically challenged.
We try to provide as many opportunities as possible within the school day to ensure all children have access to a very wide variety of experiences as possible. Extra-curricular activities only give the choice to a small number of pupils so we have decided to adopt an 'all inclusive' approach - see our Curriculum Enhancement session and Wider Curricular Opportunities under each subject heading.
