Curriculum & Assessment
The Curriculum at Wootton-By-Woodstock School
Wootton-By-Woodstock School has created a curriculum which is designed to engage, inspire and educate pupils through practical first hand experiences. Using parent and pupil feedback, and the objectives provided from the National Curriculum 2014, topic plans have been carefully constructed to provide effective learning for mixed age classes. For many topics pupils will participate in visits, receive speakers and also work with sports coaches, historians, scientists and community members. Much of the learning is personalised and pupils are encouraged to be active learners who think about how they learn as well as what they learn.
What is the Curriculum?
The ‘curriculum’ is all the learning and experiences, which schools provide for pupils, ensuring that they have opportunities to grow in:
• knowledge and understanding
• competence in a wide range of skills
• personal qualities, values and attitudes.
The curriculum is provided through:
• subject lessons
• classroom topics
• activities outside the classroom
• the values promoted by the school and its community.
The school also recognises that teaching and learning takes place during worship and this helps to nurture an ethos in which effective education can take place.
