At Great Wood we provide a challenging, broad and balanced curriculum which meets all pupils’ needs and enables them to ‘aim high … and make a difference’. It has been designed to:
- Support the development of agreed essential knowledge and skills.
- Develop the ‘whole child’ by promoting their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development.
- Make the curriculum relevant and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Our school curriculum centres around exciting topics. Each topic has one or two lead subjects and also involves a number of subject areas from the National Curriculum, which link to the topic. This ensures that the curriculum has breadth and depth with clear progression. Each topic also includes ‘WOW experiences’ which are planned to enrich the curriculum and extend learning further.
Children are also taught Religious Education, which follows the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus. Some subjects are taught discretely alongside the topics.
Our half termly ‘Learning Overviews’ show key learning for each subject for the half term. They provide a brief summary of the topic and detail the ‘WOW’ experience and visit/visitor.
Parents are invited to attend the curriculum meetings during the summer term, which take place after the Meet and Greet session with the class teacher. Through out the year we also organise meetings and workshops linked to different areas of the curriculum. Details will be communicated via the newsletter, website and TV in the foyer. If you have any specific questions, then please email the Headteacher at firstname.lastname@example.org or arrange a meeting with the school office.
