At Welland Primary School our aim is to provide children with a broad and balanced education. The curriculum will ensure that children achieve high academic standards through stimulating and interesting programmes of work.
We endeavour to deliver the curriculum in topics. We believe that children of primary school age are much more stimulated by topics made up of linked curriculum areas than by isolated subject teaching. We encourage the children to make links between topics and across subject areas to further their understanding of the world around them. Topics may last for a few weeks, half a term or for a whole term.
We aim to employ a range of teaching styles, including teaching individuals, groups and the whole class. Activities will stimulate independent learning through play, investigation and discussion.
During your child’s first year at School they will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. From Year One onwards they will follow the revised National Curriculum 2013. At the end of Key Stage One (Year 2) and Key Stage Two (Year 6) children undergo Standard Assessment Tests/Tasks and Teacher Assessments to assess their ability in Mathematics and English. We publish these results annually.
