Wigton Moor

Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!

Curriculum

Our 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 class 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 fee paying 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)

Pupils and Parent Opinion

Every year we seek out pupil and parent views.  The surveys we conduct help us to understand how we can improve our curriculum, teaching and school multiple ways.  We use 'People Gauge' Ltd.  Part of the survey produces a 'wordle'.  The wordles can be seen below.  The bigger the word the more times it was seen as a response.

Reporting to Parents and Carers

Parent teacher consultation meetings will be held as follows:

  • at the end of the first half of the Autumn term to see how your child has settled into the new class;
  • at the end of the first half of the Spring term to check on progress, attitude and behaviour;
  • towards the end of the Summer term for those parents and carers who need to discuss their child’s report with the class teacher.

Visiting Arrangements

We believe that an effective partnership between home and school will give our children the best possible chance of success. This belief is reflected in our arrangements for discussing children’s progress and any concerns or worries teachers, parents and carers may have.

 

On most days teachers will be available to have a very quick word with parents/carers before or after the school day. Should more time be needed, parents or carers are asked to send the teacher an e mail or arrange a mutually convenient time to meet.  The Headteacher is available to see parents and carers at short notice providing she is not seeing anyone else, or in a meeting. Appointments to see the Headteacher or teachers can also be made with the school administration staff. Please note that if you wish to see the Headteacher about something that should be dealt with in the first instance by the class teacher, there is an expectation that parents will see the class teacher first.
