What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here...
At Wincheap, we follow the programmes of study of the National Curriculum for England (2014) and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), and our rich curriculum provides exciting and relevant opportunities for learning. We hold Artsmark Gold, with the arts and forest school central to a topic-based curriculum that engages and inspires children inside and outside the classroom. We employ highly-experienced specialist teachers for art, music, forest school and Spanish as well as specialist sports coaches. We are very proud of our beautiful purpose-built art and music classrooms as well as the exciting forest school that we have developed in our extensive grounds.
Activities are cross curricular with a focused thematic approach to subjects across the whole curriculum. This enables our enthusiastic and creative teachers to make links between the wider topic-based curriculum and English. We aim, through building on the requirements of National Curriculum and EYFS, to expose the children to as many opportunities and experiences as possible to help them develop spiritually, morally, socially, emotionally, physically and academically and to develop cultural and community awareness. We aim to help the children develop an understanding of fundamental British values whilst appreciating their place the world, in history, in the environment as well as their potential for the future.
Our whole school curriculum overview (below) gives an idea of how this works and the exciting learning opportunities your child will experience. For more detail, please take a look at the termly curriculum plans for each year group. These are tailored to fit the interests of each class whilst meeting the objectives of the National Curriculum.
