Our Curriculum Is More Than Just Learning…
Helping all our children to fulfil their potential in every way is at the heart of the curriculum we offer.
We are proud to deliver creative and stimulating learning, which engages children of all backgrounds and abilities.
As a new academy, we are working hard to become a great place for children to learn.
Our success is based on an equal partnership between children, parents and the school.
Learning at Weaverham is broad and balanced and fulfils all National Curriculum requirements.
Teaching is structured to allow for as many creative opportunities as possible.
Children enjoy curriculum-related days out and visitors into school each term. Phonics and reading take place on a daily basis.
This year we are working closely with the Maths Hub to develop our teaching in Maths and we are working with the English Hub to help us further improve our teaching of phonics and early reading.
Throughout our work, we make links with the British values where we can.
Learning takes place in a variety of single year and mixed age classes depending on numbers. Our children are encouraged to work in partnership with their teacher.
In addition to building pupils’ academic knowledge, we focus on a wide range of practical skills, which enable them to become skilled independent learners. We use specialists to maximise learning. For example, each half-term, every class takes part in Forest Schools, Cooking and Gardening. Every child swims- from Reception to Year 3 on a weekly basis and then as they progress through the school on a termly basis. Additionally, a PE teacher from Rudheath teaches our PE on a weekly basis.
Each term we publish a curriculum outline which explains what each class will be learning.
Should you have any questions about this, please contact your child’s teacher. Further details are on the homepage of each class.
