The Curriculum at Windmill

 

Windmill Primary School Curriculum Statement

 

Our curriculum is a reflection of the core values of the school. It is designed to be inclusive, inspiring and to support us in delivering our school vision and the National Curriculum. The delivery of the curriculum takes into account neuroscientific research.

 

Curriculum Organisation across the school

The content of the National Curriculum is mapped through topics across year groups to ensure appropriate continuity and progression of skills and knowledge within each subject.

Subject leaders are responsible for supporting and planning and monitoring of each specific subject.

In addition to the National Curriculum, we embrace opportunities to extend and inspire learning and experiences to ensure that children leave Windmill as lifelong learners.

Subjects (including Literacy and Science) are integrated where there is a common theme of learning.

 

Curriculum Organisation in year

Each year group plans for the expected subject specific outcomes based on progression from the previous year group. Key skills and knowledge are planned and delivered through engaging and exciting teaching.

Year groups review topics annually to assess impact on learning and to tailor forthcoming learning to the cohort.

 

Concepts

As children progress through the school they will encounter a set of core concepts which link directly to our school vision. Each year the children will meet these concepts across a range of curriculum subjects and within different contexts to support their understanding.

The concepts are: Power, Resistance, Sustainability, Source, Diversity and Creation. 

Curriculum/Topic overviews for individual year groups can be found on the relevant year group pages.

Please find more information below about the curriculum overviews for Year 1-6.
