At South Wingfield Primary School we have developed a knowledge and skills led curriculum, which gives our children inspirational learning experiences. Staff use a variety of stimuli to hook the children in at the start of their learning, after which learning challenges further develop curiosity and core skills. Whole class books inspire the writing process and often have links to other curriculum areas, especially humanities and personal development. Humanities, Art, RE and Science are driven by a Learning Challenge Curriculum. Opportunities to develop personal and social skills through physical exercise, Forest Schools and exploration are a routine feature of the curriculum.
In addition to year group learning, we regularly engage in whole school initiatives to excite the whole community. These complement the curriculum, promote community and encourage engagement with families. Examples include the Take One Picture exhibition, Anti-Bullying & Online Safety Weeks, Science Week, European Day of Languages and many charitable events including our work with Clay Cross Food Bank, Children in Need and Odd Socks Day .
Our enriched and innovative curriculum is planned around our topic areas using the National Curriculum with curricular links whenever appropriate. Whilst effectively preparing children for the next phase with sound mathematical and literacy abilities, it is balanced and broadly based promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of children and preparing them for the opportunities and responsibilities of later life. Sport, technology, health & relationships, the arts, humanities, religious education, languages and contributing to the wider community are all championed by passionate subject leaders – often experts in their field – and supported by investment in all curriculum areas. We have excellent outdoor facilities and these allow us to enrich children's learning experiences by; visiting the school pond, doing Forest Schools either in Shaw Wood or in our own grounds, PE in our extensive playgrounds and field or bug hunts in the forest school and orchard areas! All classes have access to laptops/ipads to help support online learning and our staff have termly access to quality CPD to ensure they have up-to-date knowledge of the latest curriculum developments.
Pupils leave South Wingfield Primary School with a secure understanding of the academic content; with the understanding of how to be socially, morally, spiritually and culturally responsible and globally aware; how to make positive contributions to the local area and how to endeavour to be the best that they can be. We aim for all of our children to leave South Wingfield Primary School; respectful, skillful and ambitious, with the motivation and passion to continue to learn and with a thirst for life and all it has to offer.
