Wigton Moor

Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!

Curriculum

Here at Wigton Moor we are proud to offer the children a broad and balanced curriculum.  While reading, writing and mathematics are a continuous focus, all pupils gain valuable  experience from a wide range of other subject areas.

 

If you would like to find out more about what your child learns at school each day click in the year group pages to find the Long Term Plans and Curriculum Information Sheets.  Long Term plans (LTP) map out the areas of study across the three terms.  They are subject to change but give an overview of study.  The curriculum information sheets provide more specific information, such as termly highlights, key dates and key information.  These are updated each term.

Overview

The ‘basic’ school curriculum includes the ‘national curriculum’, as well as religious education and sex education.

The national curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by primary and secondary schools so children learn the same things. It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

Other types of school like academies and private schools don’t have to follow the national curriculum.

Key stages

The national curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS).

  • Early years foundation stage (Reception)
  • Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2)
  • Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6)
