Curriculum Statement

 

As a Church of England school, the Christian faith is at the heart of all we do at Walesby, not only in what we teach, but in how we teach. We uphold the C of E’s values and entwine them with our ‘Walesby Way’ and R.I.C.H values, so that children become confident, resilient individuals, ready to foster a  life-long love of learning, allowing them to flourish in all that they do.

 

At Walesby C of E Primary School, our broad and balanced curriculum is carefully designed, organised and planned for depth of learning. This enables our children to use their skills and understanding, in all areas of the curriculum. Children are not merely covering the curriculum, but developing an enquiring mind, that makes links with prior learning enabling them to develop a deeper understanding of the knowledge, skills and vocabulary within subjects.

 

Our curriculum is built around engaging topics, linked to the National Curriculum and Development Matters for EYFS 2021, and also makes connections with our local area and its history. At the same time, we aim to prepare our children for life in the wider world and community, and plan in activities, visits and topics to provide them with the opportunities to experience “life in all its fullness” (John 10:10).
