Curriculum Statement

 

Our creative and flexible curriculum motivates and challenges learning across all subjects. This approach focuses on teaching and assessing skills and allows children to solve problems, think critically and demonstrate mastery level understanding across a broad and vibrant curriculum. 

 

What We Believe

 

We believe that teaching should be full of ideas rather than restricted by facts. At WPS we foster excellence by allowing creativity into our classrooms. We give teachers the freedom to explore the interests of the children, while playing to the strengths of their own specialisms. We believe that this drives intrinsic motivation and generates curiosity.

 

At Watlington Primary School children have the right to learn the necessary skills to become life-long learners and offer a valuable contribution to the wider community.  By acquiring these learning behaviours, children are able to apply their skills to gain new knowledge and deepen their understanding of the complex world around them.  We recognise the importance of children developing cultural capital and offer opportunities for children to develop and deepen their knowledge. We strive to expose our children to experiences that they may not have otherwise had.
